Castle Court teams up with Michaela Foundation

CastleCourt has teamed up with Michaela Foundation to host a shopping bag customising workshop this Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August for children aged 8 and above with a creative flair and those wishing to develop their artistic talents.

Delivered by Michaela Foundation Summer Camp Leaders, the interactive workshops are free for all participants. However, voluntary donations would be greatly appreciated by Michaela Foundation. All materials and equipment will be provided including craft material kindly donated by Bargain Books. The lucky participants will get to keep their exclusive customised Michaela Foundation shopping bag.

Michaela Foundation aims to inspire, support and educate young people across Ireland to live Life Without Limits.

Úna Kelly from the Michaela Foundation, said “Michaela Foundation recognises the constant pressures on young people today from the media and their peers. We aim to facilitate them with the tools and mind-set to combat these pressures and to remain true to their own values. By participating in the workshop, Michaela Foundation hope that the children will not only develop their creativity but also develop their self-confidence and sense of individuality.”

Places are limited so it is advised that all interested children arrive at the scheduled starting time. Parents must accompany their children to workshop registration.

Centre Director, Paul McMahon said: “We’re delighted to be able to support the Michaela Foundation through fun and creative activity. The centre will be busy with Mums and Dads getting kids ready to go back to school so the bag workshop is a great opportunity for children to create their own bag for the new term.”

The hour-long workshops will take place in a temporary unit on the first floor at the following times:
· 10.30 – 11.30

· 12.00 – 13.00

· 13.30 – 14.30

· 15.00 – 16.00
