THERE was face painting, magic and arts and crafts as disabled youngsters enjoyed a spring tea party.

Around 75 youngsters, aged under 19, who are living with disabilities or life-limiting illnesses joined their families for the fun day out at the Ageas Bowl.

The party was organised by Solent NHS Trust after receiving funding from children’s charity Starlight.

The children, who are supported by the trust’s community children’s nursing complex care team, got to meet the Easter Bunny, Peppa Pig and a Minion from animated film Despicable Me.
