Families were invited to a day of pampering, entertainment and fun at a party organised by a children’s hospice.

More than 100 people attended the Noah’s Ark annual summer ball at the Cavendish Banqueting Suite in Colindale.

Throughout the day, disabled children and their parents could try their hand at arts and crafts, have their nails decorated, get their faces painted or play video games.

The highlight of the event was a bubble station where children could learn how to blow giant foam bubbles.

Performers from charity Spread a Smile entertained families with magic tricks, while education charity Bag Books ran sensory story sessions and pres-school group Movers and Shakers held a lively musical session.
