Gorgie Farm 2014


Funny Lumps Events



CAL'S Birthday party was attended by lots of excited children and parents. There were some fantastic fancy dresses, with two of the children winning prizes for the best ones. Everyone had a chance to pet a selection of animals in The Pet Lodge. The children got to hold snakes, rats, tortoises, rabbits and even a lizard!! This obviously gave the kids so much pleasure and a lot of confidence being around animals.


It was then time for the Birthday Monster to arrive and everyone sang Happy Birthday to CAL and he blew out all of his candles on his cake. Taking very special care not to singe his fur! All of the children then had party food and cakes and listened to some fantastic music.


Everyone then played Pinata, taking it in turns blind folded to try and get the sweets out of the Pinata! The children were hitting the Pinata especially hard and finally one of the children managed to smash it!


It was then onto Musical Statues. The children tried very hard to stay still and CAL really struggled and was the first to be removed from the game. But CAL didn't mind.


Whilst the children were having fun, this gave all of the parents time to chat about the kids and especially about the realities of Neurofibromatosis Type 1. It was a few of the families first time at a Funny Lumps event and it was great to finally meet them all. After so much chat online it's great to eventually meet people face to face and form lasting friendships.


Sadly, all good things come to an end, and it was time to say goodbye to the children and families, and say goodbye to CAL. As you can see from the video below, the important thing was all of the children's smiley faces. There were definitely lots of these!
