The big High Rise first birthday party takes place on Saturday 1st July, from 12 noon to 4pm and will feature activities for all ages. The Q Radio Roadshow, featuring host Connor Brennan will be there providing music and entertainment. Don’t miss out on a day filled with family fun including, climbing competitions, facepainting, prizes and giveaways, food promotions and samples as well as themed sensory storytelling sessions.
High Rise is run by local charity Employers For Childcare and 100% of the profits from the centre are invested in the charity, which helps parents with dependent children to get into and stay in work. Employers For Childcare Chief Executive Marie Marin, commented: “We are so excited for our first birthday celebrations this weekend and look forward to welcoming all our guests to enjoy everything that’s going on in the centre. Over the past year High Rise has welcomed almost 20,000 guests through the doors, which has enabled our Family Benefits Advice Service to help thousands of parents to identify the financial support they are entitled to, leaving them significantly better off”.
“So as well as offering fun activities, every single visit to High Rise helps us to continue the work of our charity, which is needed now more than ever. We are proud to be a Social Enterprise and we’d love to encourage anyone planning a family day out or a meet up with friends this summer to consider ‘buying social’ and visiting High Rise.”
“We advise anyone coming along to our first birthday celebrations to pre-book their Clip ‘n Climb, soft play or sensory room sessions online as walk-in availability is likely to be limited”.
