Free theme park/attractions ticket

I'm looking for someone to accompany me to attractions/theme parks etc around London such as Chessington, London eye, Aquarium, Alton towers etc. Your ticket will be free and I don't need much assistance, just a little friendly chat/emotional support, I'm in Canning town, East London.

    Hello @supa and welcome to the community. 

     

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m sure you’ll find it to be a positive outlet, feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.


    I do think that access to PAs to attend events is an area that could do with greater focus going forward. Some people can only attend certain places if they have a PA, or have a strong preference to have a PA, and when somebody isn't available it can result in missing out. I get this a lot with live music events, I frequently can't go because there isn't anybody available to go with me.

    Have you considered getting in touch with your local council to see if they have any suggestions? We are a community of people spread all over the country so you may not find that we have somebody in your local area.

    Thank you for your advice, I haven't found anything in my local council, but I just thought I'd ask here if by chance there's anyone in London (doesn't have to be my area).
