If you go down to Christchurch Park on Friday 7th June you’re sure of a big surprise!
In celebration of International Children’s Day there will be a Teddy Bears’ Picnic between midday and 2pm to raise money and awareness for UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund).
This will be a magical picnic for children and adults alike. There will be music, story telling, craft activities, face painting, competitions, yummy homemade edibles and much more.
International Children’s Day is celebrated all over the world on 1st June, aiming to encourage tolerance and understanding between children and promote child welfare.
The event will be a great opportunity for children to have fun and learn about children around the world. There’s enough food in the world for all children to have enough to eat; yet children are still going to bed hungry.
UNICEF is the global leader in child nutrition. They are saving and transforming children’s lives every day. Nutritious food is essential for children to grow up healthy and UNICEF believes every child should get the food they need to survive and thrive.
UNICEF receives no funding from the UN budget so relies entirely on voluntary donations to fund their vital work for children. By being part of this Teddy Bears’ Picnic you can help make sure that every child has enough food to eat.
Bring a teddy (or 10), a picnic and a rug and join in this fun packed event. You never know you might even be able to break a record for the biggest teddy bears picnic!
