A young group from Tullyally will run their own free indoor Festival to raise much needed funds for BBC Children in Need this weekend.
Tullyally's Fantastic Carnival on Saturday November 15 has been organised and run by a newly formed group of young people, Tullyally Teens, under the guidance of The Playhouse youth art project Street Talk.
Their much anticipated event for all the family will have the YMCA Hall in Drumahoe transformed into an indoor Festival for people of all ages to come together and raise money for BBC Children in Need.
This initiative, directed under the guidance of The Playhouse youth art project Street Talk, has already been in the planning stages for some time and the group has been working hard to make sure it's a success.
Funded by Derry City Council, J Paul Getty JNR Charitable Trust, BBC Children in Need, and the PSNI, the teens have organized everything from music, a bouncy castle, facepainting, games, refreshments and arts & crafts. Rumour has it that even Pudsey Bear will make an appearance at this one off free event!
Facilitator Nicky Harley said "These guys have worked really hard to put this event together. They have thought of something for everyone to enjoy. I would say to people to come along to YMCA from 1-4pm on Saturday and just enjoy the activities. All proceeds donated will go to a great cause. Just give what you can whilst having loads of fun!"
"We want to give something to Tullyally that everybody can come to and enjoy," said one of the teens. The project started as a way to give back to Tullyally and also to Children in Need, the organization that "empowers children and extends their life choices" across the UK.
Tullyally's Fantastic Carnival to raise funds for Children in Need will be at the YMCA Hall in Drumahoe on Saturday 15 November from 1pm to 4pm.
This event is part of The Playhouse youth art project Street Talk, which is funded by Derry City Council, J Paul Getty JNR Charitable Trust, BBC Children in Need, and the PSNI.
