Two Portstewart parent and toddler groups have come together once again to hold a sponsored Pramble - and this year’s charity is Macmillan Cancer.
Teenie Tots and Baby Zone, which hold weekly meetings at Portstewart Baptist Church, have both been affected by cancer since their last pram push in 2014.
Karen from Baby Zone explained: “Unfortunately cancer affects many families however several families attending both groups have been affected over the past year. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and we wanted to show our support by chosing MacMillan Cancer as this year’s charity.
“The Pramble is now in its fourth year and has raised a lot of much needed money for various charities close to our hearts including the Bubble Foundation for Oscar, Children’s Hospice in Northern Ireland and Abigail’s Fund which is part of Mission Africa. Unfortunately due to other commitments last year’s event didn’t go ahead. However both Baby Zone and Teenie Tots felt this year was a must and we would raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer to show our support and thoughts to our friends and their families.
“The walk starts at Portstewart Baptist Church and everyone is welcome to come along, bring a friend, and help us show support for those suffering from cancer and help raise vital funds for this absolutely worthwhile charity.”
If you would like to take part in the Pramble simply come along to Portstewart Baptist Church car park on Saturday, May 21 at 10am for 10.30am walk.
There is no entry fee although donations will be most welcome. Refreshments will also be available at Portstewart Baptist Church after the walk. There will also be face painting, a bouncy castle and much more.
Baby Zone held the ‘Portstewart Pramble’ event for the first time to raise funds to thank the Bubble Foundation in Newcastle for their support after a tot from the group underwent a bone marrow transplant. Teenie Tots meets every Monday from 10am to 11.30am and Baby Zone (babies under 12 months) meets every Friday in Portstewart Baptist Church from 2pm to 3.30pm. Members, new and old, are always welcomed with open arms.
