Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

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.
