Eggsplorers young and old will be scrambling to join a fun egg hunt in Letterkenny this Easter Saturday.
An eggciting event is coming to Letterkenny this month as the Town Park will host one of the famous family Easter Egg Hunts.
Go Visit Letterkenny is working with Cadbury Ireland to host one of eight national Easter Egg Hunts on Saturday 31st March, with all proceeds in aid of Barnardos.
Running from 12 – 2pm in the Town Park, the Easter Egg Hunt will include family fun with face-painting, arts and crafts, Disney characters, a bouncy castle and much more.
Entry is €3 per person or €10 for a family pass and all proceeds will go directly towards Barnardos. Tickets can be purchased on the gate and Go Visit Letterkenny organisers are advising early arrival as chocolate eggs and treats will be limited to the first 250 children.
Speaking about bringing events like these to the town, Ciaran Brogan of Go Visit Letterkenny said: “We’re delighted that Letterkenny has been selected as one of eight locations across Ireland to host one of the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts this year.
“We’re pulling together a family fun event for people of all ages, so we hope to see a great turnout. Go Visit Letterkenny members have also donated some great prizes which will be raffled on the day and we’re delighted to be doing our bit to raise funds for Barnardos as well.”
Adding to this, Mary Gamble, Director of Fundraising, Barnardos said: “I’m delighted to see that Go Visit Letterkenny will be supporting Barnardos this year by hosting a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt.
“The running of these events support our work with children and families across the country, and we’re very appreciative. We hope you can attend this wonderful family day out in Letterkenny in aid of Barnardos. You can also show your support by texting ‘BARNARDOS’ to 50300 to donate €4* to a very worthy cause this Easter.”
