You must be registered with us to obtain a V.I.P. Wristband for our events. If you have a child or young person with a special need or disability and are not registered with us, it's easy to do so.

Drop us a message here on this link to our Facebook page and inbox us, we will soon have you registered. Once we have your details and proof of disability, we can arrange for tickets to be posted out to you or you can pop into our new office at Leigh to collect.

We are pleased to announce that we will be having two very special Blessing in Disguise V.I.P. Days in association with A.L. Silcock Fun Fairs this Springtime.

Now that all the restrictions have been lifted we have managed to re-open the much missed event at Orford Park, Warrington as well as our regular event at DW Stadium, Wigan.  This is a fantastic day out at the fun fair exclusively for children and families registered with Blessings.


We were so happy that we could open our events for the children at long last after them not being able to go for so very long due to Covid-19 and the lockdown restrictions.

Here is a collage of some of the photos from last May's event at DW Stadium.

The feedback from the event was fabulous. Everyone had a much needed day out and back to some sort of 'normality'.
