group had a float in the parade and a great time was had
by all - especially the children and adults on the float

Childhood Cancer Day 2004:
On the 15th of February 2004 CHICS held a Great Balloon
Race. The balloons were launched outside the Oncology
Unit at Alder Hey Hospital. Before the ballons were
launched we were given a display of football skills and
tricks which everyone enjoyed. Then just after 2pm the
balloons were let loose. CHICS had originally hoped for
around 2000 balloons, but thanks to everyones generosity
CHICS were able to release nearly 5000.
After the balloons
were released we were treated to a display of juggling,
before going to the NALGO club in Alder Road for some
more entertainment and a buffet. This picture is of (left
to right), Wendy Peckham, Jayne Hollins and Lucy Williams,
all patients cutting the iced cake at the NALGO club.
MBNA Party 2004:
Here are some photos from the MBNA party had on the 29th
Feb 2004. The party theme was "Finding Nemo"
and the kids as well as the adults really enjoyed it.
There was a bouncy castle, a clown doing balloons,
playing games, a disco, video's to watch and a lovely
party dinner. A good day was had by all. Thanks to all
the staff at MBNA my little boy had a really good day,
and thanks to CHICS and Erica.
