at Halloween Fest in Westport House on October 29th
Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland (Friday, October 7, 2011) – Kick off your mid-term break by helping children who need support, empowerment or protection – and have some Halloween fun while you do it. On Saturday, October 29th, Westport House will be raising funds for Childline Castlebar, with a portion of proceeds raised on the first day of its Halloween Fest event going to the local children’s charity. Sales of eery ticket to Halloween Fest and meals bought at Gracy’s Café as well as each zorb ride with Adventure West will go to helping deliver the phone, online and text services that Childline provides to local Mayo children in trouble.
Double the “feel good factor” because for the duration of the mid-term break from October 29th to November 6th, you and your little monsters will have a hauntingly good time at Halloween Fest as you experience the thrills ‘n’ chills of the Pirate Adventure Park –board the eerie Westport House Express train ride, get into high ‘spirits’ on the swinging ship and swan boats on the lake, have a devilish time on the cannonball run slide, and take the plunge to death on the log flume water ride.
