SkyPark will hold a Family Fun Day on Easter Monday (28th March 2016) in Carlingford, Co. Louth to launch their new season. The event will be held in aid of Tony Mulholland, a SkyPark employee who was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Tony, originally from Forkhill in Co. Armagh, was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. The father of five, who recently married his partner Kim on the 4th March 2016, was a part of the Carlingford Adventure Centre team for 3 years, and has become a valued member of the staff.
“Myself and Tony trained together when we were both starting out as outdoor instructors,” said Thomas McArdle, Managing Director of SkyPark and Carlingford Adventure Centre. “Then Tony came to work with me at Carlingford Adventure Centre for a few years. I am now in a position to help fundraise for Tony and his family and I hope that his friends and family will help spread the word of this event.”
Families will be able to take part in face painting, bouncy castles (kindly donated by Bounce Magic), archery and body zorbing throughout the day. Soup and sandwiches will be provided to allow everyone to make the most of the day. All proceeds from the day will be going directly to the Mulholland family.
