Sponsor a Child



Calling all businesses in the North West! Spread a little happiness this Christmas by giving families the opportunity to enjoy a magical day out.

Every child deserves to have a merry Christmas but sadly, not all children are fortunate over the festival season.

Some may be sick, caring for relatives or their families simply don't have enough money to enjoy the fun things we enjoy and take for granted each Yuletide. Or perhaps they have done something extra special, like caring for a loved one, or arranging a charity event, for which they deserve a reward?

Now you can make a child's dream come true by giving them a magical experience to remember forever.

Businesses, organisations and individuals can "Sponsor a Child" to enjoy a fun day out with their families at Winter Wonderland Manchester, the UK's largest indoor winter event at EventCity, next to the intu Trafford Centre, Manchester.

You can Sponsor a Child during the checkout process while buying your own Winter Wonderland tickets, where you will be invited to purchase tickets for underprivileged children. Or you can click here to Sponsor a Child directly. You can buy as many as you like from one to one thousand!! The tickets will then be allocated to deserving families in the North West.

Companies purchasing over 100 Sponsor a Child tickets will be listed on the Winter Wonderland Manchester website as well as on the event's giant thank you board which will be displayed at the entrance of Winter Wonderland Manchester for people to see when they walk in.

Winter Wonderland Manchester has proved hugely successful since opening in 2013 with 70,000 visitors attending the event in 2016. Organisers anticipate even larger numbers next year as it becomes a firm favourite on Manchester’s event calendar.

Tammy Silcock of Kingpin Events, the organiser of Winter Wonderland said: "We believe that all children deserve to have a fun family day out over the festive season - it's what family Christmasses are made of. Sadly, not all families have the funds or resources but hopefully we can make this happen and ensure their Christmas is a very merry one!"

So spread a little kindness this Christmas. Purchasing a few tickets is a quick, easy and fantastic way to ensure that families in the North West have a very merry Christmas.

Charities we work with

Once Upon a Smile

A message from one of our families:

"I have not seen our boys smile like that since their Dad died last year. This was the first time since my husband’s death that we have been out as a family, although it was difficult for us without him, it was one of the best evenings we have ever experienced. Thank you so much for giving us something to smile about during the festive period."

Rainbow House

Thank you to Winter Wonderland Manchester for allowing 7 of our families to visit their amazing indoor 'Christmas Theme Park' last Friday. All the families had a wonderful time on all of the rides, meeting Anna and Elsa, seeing the Sooty show and the Circus and of course... meeting Santa himself! It was an action packed evening. Thanks again, Winter Wonderland is highly recommended by us!

Leisure for Autism

We’re so grateful to Winter Wonderland for staging this special charity evening. The youngsters that we support are all autistic and struggle to cope with crowds, queues and “babble”. The special evening meant that they were able to enjoy an activity that most other youngsters would take for granted and the feedback from their parents has been universally positive. I attended the event with my own son and he had a wonderful time – I really can’t thank you enough, on a personal level and on behalf of the families that we support.

Breaking Barriers

The feedback we've had from the Charity evening has been amazing. The experience you gave the families from our organisation has been a once in a lifetime acceptance, understanding and inclusion for many and for tall the chance to take part in something as a family without being judged or belittled.

Without exception all of the children had the most fantastic time and everybody thoroughly appreciated the level of customer service, empathy and patience the staff and organisers had.

From an administrative point of view all the representatives of the Event Management Team were courteous, polite, friendly and helpful - even managing to sort out an 11th hour ticketing trauma!

Thank you so much for allocating us some tickets and so allowing some of our families to visit a wonderful event that would otherwise have been impossible for them to manage.
