Over four hundred pounds for local charity Childline Gibraltar was raised over the weekend at a Toy Story Family Day recently held in Ocean Village.
A statement from Ocean Village reads:
Saturday 8th June was another great day out for families at Ocean Village, as a fun-filled Toy Story event took place in aid of Childline Gibraltar.
Popular Pixar characters Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie entertained the children with an exciting Toy Story themed Treasure Hunt and party games.
A bouncy castle, face painting and other games and activities organized by Childline took place, including “Pick the X” and “Open The Treasure Chest”
Many children attended the event dressed as their favourite Toy Story character and lucky winners Luca, Evie & Noah (pictured) won tickets to the Toy Story 4 premiere which will be released at the end of the month courtesy of Leisure Cinemas.
The total raised from the day’s activities was £413.05
Annie Green, Chairperson for Childline Gibraltar said:
“We are very grateful to Ocean Village for organising this wonderful event. Fundraising initiatives like this allow us to offer our service and keep going on our mission to end all forms of cruelty to children in Gibraltar. Lots of children, lots of treasure hunting fun, games and dancing with Woody, Buzz and Jessie, all in aid of Childline Gibraltar. Childline volunteers and the Childline bear were on hand to get the proceedings off to a good start, and we were delighted to see so many children joining the fun. What a lovely time we had with the Toy Story gang!”
Emilia Hazell-Smith, Marketing and Social Media executive for Ocean Village said: “Holding these kind of events at Ocean Village allows us to give back to the local community and raise money for important local causes, while providing a fun day out for families. This very successful event has
helped us raise much-needed awareness for Childline. Thank you to everyone who contributed to and supported this event including the Childline volunteers and the all-important sponsors for the prizes for the lucky winners today: Leisure Cinemas, Pizza Express Gibraltar, Kings Bastion, Supernatural Gibraltar and Bridge Bar & Grill.”
