Local children with cancer and their families were treated to a few hours of fun at Sea World’s Castaway Bay before it opened to the public this morning.
The group, decked out in their best pirate costumes, were at the theme park to help launch Talk Like A Pirate Day – a Childhood Cancer Support fundraiser which will take place on September 19.
General Manager of Childhood Cancer Support Helen Crew said the outing was a rare occurrence for children with cancer and their families.

“They don’t usually get the opportunity to come out into the public, so closing off this area by Sea World and coming in before the gates open is very special for the children so they can have a great time today,” she said.
Ms Crew said Talk like a Pirate Day is a really fun fundraiser.
“It’s a chance for us to raise money so we can provide accommodation and professional counselling support to families affected by childhood cancer.”
