Merlin's Magic Wand Big Day Out
Many people don't know that Merlin Entertainments Group's charity is Merlin's Magic Wand which helps and supports seriously ill, disadvantaged and disabled children aged between 2 and 18.
On Sunday the 24th May, Merlin's Magic Wand hosted a Big Day Out for children from the Sydney Children's Hospital. An amazing turn out of 180 children and their families visited Sydney's favourite family friendly attractions - Madame Tussauds Sydney, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. The children and their families enjoyed a much needed break; they enjoyed the beautiful Sydney weather and access Darling Harbour's best attractions. Merlin Entertainments Group events team along with some amazing volunteers put together fabulous gift bags for each of the children and showed the children and their families a lovely day out.
Here at Merlin Entertainments Group, we make memorable experiences every day. Some children are faced with conditions and circumstances that prevent them from making the trip to one of our awesome Sydney attractions, so we take the magic to them with hospital visits featuring animal encounters and even superhero figures!
