Four hundred seriously and terminally ill children from across the South of England enjoyed a very special day out at Popham Airfield with national children’s charity Starlight.

The event was Starlight’s 18th annual Popham Escape Day and it was an unforgettable experience for the young guests and their families.

They enjoyed a variety of exhilarating activities, such as a flight in an aeroplane or helicopter or – for those who preferred to remain on terra firma – an exciting ride around the airfield in a hovercraft, racing car or motor bike. On the ground, there were also pony rides, face painters, magicians and giant games to keep the families entertained during the day.
