On Saturday 2nd April Gymboree hosted a spectacular event at Leamington Spa’s Family Tree Member’s Club all to help raise money for our charity challenge ‘Challenge A Mummy To Raise Some Money’ , which aims to raise £1000 to provide a one of five fold out chairs for Warwick Hospital’s Maternity Ward to enable Daddies to stay over in those all-important hours after baby has been born. (You can read more about that here).
Almost as soon as I had launched the charity challenge i had received a message from Natalie from Gymboree Play and Music, Warwick, who was inspired to take part and she was really excited to go away and think of some fundraising ideas they could do to join in. That’s when the Bubble-A-Thon was born! Natalie and Kelsey decided they would host an event where they would continuously blow bubbles for a whopping 45 minutes during a gymboree-themed party!
The day was a huge success with 116 families attending the event which alongside the amazing bubbles had soft play for the children and a fabulous bouncy castle donated by Best Party Hire.
The event was such a success that the duo managed to raise a huge £232.90 for our charity!!!
What a fantastic amount for such a wonderful cause.
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the event to support the charity and of course to Natalie and Kelsey from Gymboree for everything you have done to support us and our charity, we had a ball!
Among the many families and parents in attendance there was the lovely Lisa from Little Beanies photography who was enjoying the party with her gorgeous little man Louis. A true multi-tasking Mummy she was also snapping away to take these gorgeous pictures of the event, thank you for letting us use them Lisa!
