12 Worcester families enjoyed a unique theatre experience last month singing and dancing with their favourite TV characters at the Milkshake! Live show.

For some, the visit to the Swan Theatre in Worcester was one of the first major outings they have had as a family in many months, because of the pandemic.

The event was made possible because of a grant from the Worcestershire Freemasons and the Masonic Charitable Foundation which is funded by Freemasons and their families and friends, from across England and Wales.

Harriet Squirrel, Contact’s Better Together Events Manager, said: “We’re very grateful to our friends at Worcestershire Freemasons for their generous grant. Thanks to the Masonic Charitable Foundation, we put on lots of family fun events like this over the summer across the country. Forming part of our Better Together programme, events like this are a fantastic opportunity for families who care for a disabled child to share fun experiences, make friends and build support networks”.

Stephen Wyer, Head of Worcestershire Freemasons said: “I was pleased to join 50 children with special needs and their families where we all enjoyed a performance of Milkshake! Live. It was great to see how much the children enjoyed it and a lovely break for their parents and carers.”
