High Rise family adventure centre in Lisburn has been shortlisted for a major award in the annual Social Enterprise Northern Ireland Awards. The inclusive and accessible climbing and soft play centre, which also has two interactive sensory rooms, has made the shortlist for the ‘Northern Ireland’s Best Consumer Facing Social Enterprise’ Award.
The winner will be decided by a public vote so the team at local charity, Employers For Childcare, which owns and operates High Rise is appealing for your vote to help them win this prestigious award. Employers For Childcare’s Chief Executive Marie Marin commented: “We are honoured that High Rise has been shortlisted for this important Award, just a year after we reopened. Our staff team work so hard to ensure every single guest has a fantastic time when they visit High Rise and winning this Award would be such a brilliant recognition of their effort and dedication in going the extra mile to support our guests. When we opened High Rise we wanted it to be somewhere that all families could come to enjoy leisure time together.
“This summer we have welcomed guests from all across Ireland, and beyond, including many with additional needs, who have just had the best time enjoying all the wonderful facilities within the centre. Best of all, as a social enterprise, all profits from High Rise go to support the work of our charity, which helps parents locally and across the UK.
“We are now asking everyone that has visited High Rise to take 10 seconds to vote for us to win this Award using this link – https://bit.ly/3QSvEk4 . But be quick as voting closes at midnight on Wednesday 6th September!”
The winner will be announced at a gala awards ceremony taking place on Friday 27th October at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Belfast.
