This really was an experience to remember!
Some of the young people supported by Teens Unite got up close and personal with the Meerkats. While feeding them their morning snack they learned about their behaviour, feeding and habits – and what curious and inquisitive little creatures they are!
Daniel and Connor from Paradise Wildlife Park, shared their wealth of knowledge and even introduced us to some of the smaller and more unusual animals with a visit to the VIP Cabin. Before our final stop to the Jungle Theatre for the animal antic show.
A HUGE thank you to Paradise Wildlife Park for their continued support and a special thank you to Daniel and Connor for looking after us all along the way.
It was a truly unique and memorable day!

I cannot express enough how important time spent with other cancer sufferers is to me. I enjoyed the whole day, so much so that I hardly noticed the cold! "- Liam, 22, Nerve Sheath Sarcoma
