Alton Towers Big Day Out

Saturday 28th September saw four coaches leave County Hall, packed with children in care and carers on their way to Alton Towers for a great day out; many more made their own way by car.

Eight East Midlands local authorities, including Leicestershire joined with each other on the trip organised by Terry Galloway, a Nottinghamshire businessman, who was in care himself and is now a prominent advocate for children in care and care leavers.

Volunteers made packed lunches for all the coach parties with food donated by a local supermarket.
