Plun­ket fun-filled day for the lit­tlies

Central Leader - - News -

A fun-filled day for the lit­tle peo­ple is what Mt Eden Plun­ket wants to give back to its lo­cal com­mu­nity to­mor­row.

Young fam­i­lies are in­vited to cel­e­brate Plun­ket Aware­ness Week at the Bal­moral Bap­tist Church, on the cor­ner of Do­min­ion Rd and Queens Ave.

Rather than us­ing the event to raise funds for Plun­ket as was tra­di­tion­ally done, the fam­ily fun day is all about rais­ing aware­ness of its com­mu­nity ser­vice, says com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Jen­nifer Miller.

“The day will give back to the al­most 1000 fam­i­lies who have sup­ported us in our ef- forts for so many years,” she says.

“We just want them to come along with their kids and en­joy the en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer.”

Plun­ket is New Zealand’s largest provider of sup­port ser­vices for the de­vel­op­ment, health and well-be­ing of chil­dren un­der five.

Good­ies on of­fer for the chil­dren in­clude pat­ting the an­i­mals from Old MacDon­ald’s Farm, play­ing with fairies, face paint­ing and a bal­loon to take home, while par­ents can buy sausages, cof­fee and cake to keep them go­ing.

There will also be sec­ond- hand cloth­ing, books, toys and a cake stall.

The fes­tiv­i­ties will take place at the Bal­moral Bap­tist Church, 682 Do­min­ion Rd, Bal­moral, from 10am to 3pm.
