The Sleigh Bell Foundation was created to spread joy and support around the festive season.  We want to invite you to a Christmas celebration that involves a traditional Christmas meal, entertainment and fun activities.  The whole focus of this event is to give you a chance to have a fun, relaxed and memorable time during this festive season.  We want to give you an experience that will create some lasting memories with your friends and family in a safe environment.


The event will take place in the stunning surroundings of Maleny Retreat, you can have a look at this beautiful venue at http://www.malenyretreatweddings.com/


We have a whole program of wonderful Christmas fun or plenty of space to sit back, enjoy an afternoon off and give yourself a chance to relax.  Beautiful decorations, a bouncy castle, face painting, music and a stilt walker are just a few things you can expect (and maybe even a visit from Santa!)…


We will focus the event around a traditional Christmas roast meal (roast chicken, roast potatoes and vegetable sides).  We try to cater for dietary requirements but please let us know (including if you are vegetarian).


For dietry requirements please email thesleighbellfoundation@gmail.com or call James on 04044 859 70
