Falconry, magic shows and make-and-do are just some of the activities on offer on Friday March 30 (Good Friday) at Old Cork Waterworks Experience during the Easter Egg Challenge to support city and county primary schools.
A fantastic family fun day out is guaranteed as children undertake a treasure hunt to solve clues on the way to finding a secret egg depot. The Easter Bunny has left an egg for everyone, who completes the challenge and will bring friends to entertain on the day.
Old Cork Waterworks Experience and Bishopstown Lions Club partner for the event with all proceeds going directly to local primary schools in the wider Bishopstown/Waterfall/Farran area.
Manager, Mervyn Horgan said: “We are delighted to be able to give back to the local schools, which have shown great support through on our education programs, last year over 1,000 Easter eggs were handed out and we have lots of different activities that will suit all age groups. Local children’s entertainers are volunteering their time, everyone gets an Easter egg and local schools benefit financially.”
The event now in its eighth year has so far raised over €80,000 all of which is donated to primary schools in the Glasheen, Ballinora, Curraheen, Farran and Bishopstown areas. Kieran Kelly, President of Bishopstown and Area Lion’s Club, said: “We are delighted to partner with this wonderful attraction to raise funds for local schools in the area and extend our thanks Bishopstown Credit Union and to all our volunteers for making the event possible this year.”
The Easter egg challenge will run from 10am to 4pm on Good Friday March 30. Tickets are available online at lifetimelab.ie and participating schools, priced at €5 per child with adults free.
