Brik­to­ber a treat for Lego lovers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

MORE than 10,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to get in­volved in Brik­to­ber next month, when the com­mu­nity is in­vited to spend the day play­ing with Lego to help char­ity.

Or­gan­ised by the Ro­tary Club of As­cot, in con­junc­tion with stu­dents at Curtin Univer­sity, Brik­to­ber is Perth’s big­gest an­nual Lego show.

Over the two-day event, par­tic­i­pants can im­merse them­selves in a Lego world with train- and truck-driv­ing, Lego cos­tumed char­ac­ters, an­i­mated Lego films and mini Lego mer­chan­dise and struc­tures on dis­play.

Brik­to­ber has also set out to chal­lenge the skills of Lego lovers with speed-build- ing com­pe­ti­tions, at­tempts to build Lego in Zi­plock bags with­out open­ing them and more.

The funds raised from the day will sup­port the Ro­tary Foun­da­tion, which works on hu­man­i­tar­ian, ed­u­ca­tional and cul­tural projects, with the world erad­i­ca­tion of po­lio be­ing a ma­jor fo­cus.

In the past five years, the Ro­tary Club of As­cot has worked to de­velop the sup­ply of fresh drink­ing wa­ter to East Ti­mor com­mu­ni­ties.

Or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing the event will raise more than $50,000.

The char­ity event will be on Oc­to­ber 10 and 11, 9am to 5pm, at the Can­ning­ton Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre and Show­grounds.

More than 10,000 peo­ple are ex­pected at Brik­to­ber this year.
