Wicklow Hospice Foundation is expecting a massive turnout at a special announcement at the Hospice site at Magheramore this Father’s Day (Sunday 15th June 2014).
To celebrate what Wicklow Hospice Foundation describe as a “landmark announcement”, organisers have put on a FREE family fun day from 12.30 to 4pm for the people of Wicklow to say a huge thank you for all they have done to support the organisation to date.
Schools, Sports Clubs, business organisations, Hospice patrons, politicians and families from across Co. Wicklow will enjoy a spectacular afternoon of free entertainment to include arts and crafts, face painting, pony rides, magicians, Disney characters, fire brigade, music and entertainment. Wicklow Radio station East Coast FM will be broadcasting live and bringing the big announcement live to listeners across Wicklow.
A very special video of Daniel Day Lewis speaking from the site will be broadcast for all to see on a giant screen.
Newcastle Airfield will be organising a spectacular flyover air display and non-stop entertainment for all the family on the day.
Families are invited to bring their own picnic – picnic blankets and picnic tables will be provided. There will also be a selection of food and drink vans should people prefer to buy lunch on site.
Walkers and runners can participate in the free 4 mile walk/run – the spectacular route circles the beautiful Magheramore site, which people can walk or run. For further details see www.wicklowhospice.ie
The event is completely sponsored and no Hospice funds will be used to fund the event. Powerscourt Hotel, Newcastle Airfield, Planit Event Management, Sovereign Security, Cox Communications and businesses from across County Wicklow have put tremendous support behind this FREE event to show their huge appreciation for the support the people of Wicklow have given over the past five years to the Magheramore Hospice.
The Columban Sisters at Magheramore have very generously donated the spectacular seaside site to provide the long-awaited Wicklow Hospice facility.
Evanne Cahill, Head of Fundraising of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation, says a huge turn-out is expected this Sunday:
“This is the biggest announcement we have made since the Wicklow Hospice Foundation was formed back in 2009.”
