Leading children’s charity the NSPCC has partnered with evergreen children’s property In the Night Garden to help raise funds and awareness for the charity’s annual Picnic Party.
Events will be taking place across the country during National Picnic Week (16 – 24 June), with families, playgroups and nurseries hosting events in their gardens, local parks and community spaces.
Organisers are able to order a free information pack from the NSPCC website, where they will also have access to a number of downloadable In The Night Garden-themed activities, including Pin the Blanket on Igglepiggle and a Pontipine Hunt.
Special In the Night Garden prizes will also be sent out following the event, including DVDs, magazines and backpacks.
“We’re really excited to be teaming up with In the Night Garden again for another year of Picnic Party,” said Victoria Kellaway, NSPCC fundraising manager. ” It’s a fun and easy way to spend time with your little ones and friends, while raising money to help keep children safe.”
She continued: “We’d like to thank In the Night Garden’s owner, DHX Brands, for providing us with prizes to give to our supporters holding their own Picnic Parties.”
The money raised from the In the Night Garden Picnic Parties will go towards supporting the NSPCC in its work to keep children safe from abuse and neglect.
