Help us fundraise for Hope House!

Are you looking for some free entertainment for the kids this half term?

Come and join in our Harvest fun days taking place at our Shrewsbury store on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October 2019, between 10am and 4pm! With an array of FREE games and activities available around the store, our fun days are suitable for children of all ages and are a great way of keeping them entertained for a few hours.

Take a look below to see what's on offer:

Krispy Kreme doughnut sale - in aid of Hope House

Doughnuts taste good, but fundraising doughnuts taste even better! We'll be selling the signature Original Glazed doughnuts (a light and fluffy dough with a classic glaze) from Krispy Kreme, with all proceeds from the sale going to Hope House. 


Hope House care for babies, children, young people and young adults up to the age of 25 years who have life-threatening conditions and are not expected to live beyond 25 years of age. They also offer counselling and bereavement support to any family living in the area who has suffered the death of a child in any circumstance, with help available for children and families living in Shropshire, Cheshire, Mid and North Wales. Learn more about the work of Hope House on their website:

Alan Ward are proud to be supporting Hope House for this event.

Arts & Crafts

Get the creativity flowing at the various colouring stations! We're keeping to theme, and have put together activities such as 'style a scarecrow' where kids can create their own unique outfit for their scarecrow.

Pumpkin Hunt

 Five pumpkins have escaped the patch and will be hidden around the store... Use the clues on the activity sheet to find them all, and be rewarded with a tasty prize at the end!


 We've made our own interpretation of the classic game by using recycled cans. This one will be sure to keep the kids busy and entertained!
