The Fountain Resource Group brought to my attention the discounted day of festivities planned at the National Aquatic Centre on December the 14th, and it looks like a really great event for families to enjoy together. All proceeds from the event will go to a very worthy cause, Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
The event – entitled Finnie’s Christmas Party – will feature music playing throughout the Aquazone, zoorb balls, Santa’s grotto, carol singers, face painting and much more. The National Aquatic Centre’s brand new Flow Rider will also be open by the time this party takes place, and staff at the venue will be wearing Santa hats and tinsel to raise the Christmas spirit!
The entrance prices on the day will be half the normal price, and all proceeds go to Temple Street, as part of the innovative 100minds campaign. It challenges 100 of Ireland’s undergraduate university students to each raise €1,000, by whatever means necessary, in order to collectively contribute €100,000 to aid sick children in Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Grainne Hawkes is the student behind this Christmas event, after being selected to participate in the 100minds campaign. She is a part time lifeguard at the National Aquatic Centre, and a final year Law Student at Trinity College, Dublin.
