Fun day will deliver an anti-bullying message
A family fun day with an anti- bullying message will be held in Halfway next month.
Organised by mother and daughter duo Natalie and Teighan McCafferty, the event will raise awareness of and money for the United Together Foundation.
Tackling discrimination, racism and bullying, United Together won the hearts of the McCafferty family when they were introduced to the charity through Teighan’s model agency.
Natalie said the event on July 16 would raise awareness of the anti- bullying message in a fun environment.
Mother of three Natalie, who lives in Drumsagard with husband William and children Morgan, Teighan and Marco, said: “There will be a bouncy castle, face painting, glitter tattoos, toys, raffle prizes, beat the goalie, sweets, hot and cold food and tea coffee. All funds raised will go the charity to continue fighting discrimination.
“We are learning about the foundation all the time and we have been made aware of it through the pageants.”
Teighan joined Models and Pageants UK Ltd last year and has been learning more about United Together as it is the chosen charity of the modelling company and is promoted at all pageants it runs across the UK.
It has been competing at these pageants - including the mini cutest kid in the UK contest, which she won last month - while Teighan has been learning about equality and what it means to be a good citizen.
Natalie added: “You don’t know what they know and understand at Teighan’s age, but we tell her that no matter what colour a person is, or their disability, everyone is treated the same.
“She does spread that message in school and she will do that more at the fun day, she has been telling her pals about it.”
The fun day takes place at North Halfway Hall on July 16 at 11am.
