On Saturday 7 July, Westfield Penrith will show its support for the local community when it hosts its annual ‘Give Ability Day’, an event focused on raising much needed funds for local children and families living with a disability.
Westfield Penrith which supports local charity, Barnardos Australia, will collect donations through in-centre activities and the sale of a limited edition bag designed exclusively by Australian fashion designer Leona Edmiston.
“After a successful inaugural Give Ability Day in 2011, we will be creating a bigger and better event making it more fun and inspiring for shoppers and the broader community. A little bit from all of us goes a long way,” said Westfield Penrith Marketing Executive, Megan Dincer.
Shoppers can purchase the Leona Edmiston Give Ability Day bag until stocks last for only $10 from Centre Court ground level. One hundred percent of proceeds from the sale of the bag will go to Barnardos Australia. The bag can be used by children and adults alike and is large enough to fit items such as school books to shopping essentials. The bag also includes chocolates, goodies and special offers from Westfield Penrith speciality retailers
Westfield and Barnardos Australia staff will be roaming the centre to collect donations at what will be a fun day of activities to keep the little ones entertained, including an appearance from Buddy (Dinosaur Train), interactive kids sports zone, face painting, balloon bending, fairy floss and popcorn machines.
