The Barrie Wells Trust and Family Fund Partnership

We are delighted to partner with the Barrie Wells Trust | Box4Kids initiative to enable families raising a disabled, or seriously ill, child, to enjoy a special day out and make unforgettable memories.  We are encouraging families to nominate themselves to attend a Box4Kids event via the Barrie Wells Trust website.

The charity is completely funded by Barrie Wells MBE, but the initiative relies on organisations donating the use of executive boxes therefore events and places cannot be guaranteed.  The Barrie Wells Trust always try to offer applicants who meet the criteria a Box4Kids event but cannot guarantee places or respond to enquiries who may not meet the criteria.

Box4Kids enables children and their families to enjoy watching a sports event or entertainment show from the comfort of an executive box at major sport and entertainment venues across the UK.  Events range from Premier League Football, entertainment shows and a day out at the races to name a few. 

To nominate a child then please visit the Barrie Wells Trust’s website and specify that you heard about Box4Kids through Family Fund when prompted:
