Family fun weekend in Blanchardstown this coming weekend
Blanchardstown Centre are hosting a Blanch-A-Thon Fundraiser this coming weekend August 26th and 27th which will have lots to do for all the family
Blanchardstown Centre is inviting customers to a family fun weekend in aid of local charity Home-Start this coming weekend. Not only will there be activities and fundraising events for all the family to take part in, but the whole thing is in aid of a very worthy charity.
Home-Start has been supporting local families in the Dublin 15 area for over 30 years and the team at Blanchardstown Centre want to raise money to help improve their on-site facilities on-site. The event will be a celebration of the local community and the wonderful work of the staff, volunteers, parents and children at Home-Start respite centre.
The centre will have a Dance-A-Thon taking place on level 2, meet and greets with characters from beloved kids' movies and live performances on every mall. And the team from 98fm will be here too with lots of goodies to give away.
Blanchardstown Centre also have over €1,000 worth of raffle prizes up for grabs, with all funds raised from the raffle going directly to Home-Start Blanchardstown.
Ciara Curtis, marketing manager for the centre, says: “Blanchardstown Centre is the heart of the local community. Our aim for our Blanch-A-Thon weekend is to support a local and very worthy cause just minutes away from us here at the centre."
"We want to make a difference to the facilities at Home-Start in Blakestown, utilised by hundreds of families across the Dublin 15 area. Our goal is to build a sensory garden and a brand new outdoor play area for the children at Home-Start respite creche," she continues.
The management teams at Blanchardstown will be also taking part in a cycle-a-thon. Pop down and show some support this weekend if you're in the area.
