Birthright Ashburton Celebrates Children's Day
It was all about the children when Birthright Ashburton helped host a family-friendly fun day to mark Children's Day 2015.
In fact not only was the event enjoyed by many members of the community, but behind the scenes its a real community affair too with many local organisations, businesses and individuals donating time and resources to ensure the day's success.
Train, motorcycle trike and the army jeep rides all proved popular activities on the day, along with the craft activity tent, face painting and the famous lolly scramble and treasure hunt.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Spongebob and Harold made special guest appearances, much to the delight of the many young children enjoying the festivities.
Birthright Ashburton would like to thank everyone who made the day such a success, including its sponsors, supporters and volunteers - and of course all the wonderful children and families who came out to celebrate Children's Day 2015.
