As part of a nationwide campaign The Ardilaun hotel will host a teddy bears picnic for Barnardos this Sunday July 5 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. All proceeds raised from teddy bears bought on the day will go to Barnardos, Ireland’s leading children’s charity.
The event is expected to host more than 150 children and their families, for a picnic lunch of activities, treats and family fun events.
Ruth Guy, Barnardos director of fundraising and marketing, said; “We hope that families enjoy the teddy bears picnic and bring a bear home. Every bear adopted on the day will contribute €10 to Barnardos. It is a novel way for families to spend a fun day together and, at the same time, help other families in Ireland.”
During the day there will be live music courtesy of the Guinness band, face-painting, monster raffle, with life- sized Winnie The Pooh and Kung Fu Panda. There will also be a best dressed competition with a prize for the winner.
Advanced booking is essential, to reserve a space call Ann-Marie or Sinead on 091 519794/519743, teddy bears picnic is €5 for children and €15 for adults. For more information visit www.theardilaunhotel.ie
