In the spirit of the holidays, the Wildlands Adventure Centre and their new restaurant the Olive Tree Kitchen are holding a festive fundraiser for COPE Galway this Saturday.
From 9:30am to 8pm on Saturday, December 19, Wildlands in Moycullen is planning a day of Christmas fun, with voucher giveaways and Santa rumoured to be dropping in to test out a new method of getting around.
The proceeds of all beverage sales including coffee, tea, festive drinks, mulled wines and minerals from the Olive Tree Kitchen on the day will be donated to COPE Galway.
COPE Galway supports some of the most vulnerable families in Galway at risk of homelessness or escaping from abusive situations.
This year has been an incredible challenge for charities of all stripes, with fundraising activities drastically cut back.
All visitors to Wildlands and the Olive Tree Kitchen on Saturday 19th of December will be in with a chance to win 2 €100 Wildlands Adventure vouchers which will give them the opportunity to enjoy the stunning Zip ‘n’ Trek course, Fun Walls, Archery, Disc Golf, Bushcraft, Yoga or the Olive Tree Kitchen. In addition there will be a delicious Olive Tree Kitchen hamper up for grabs as well.
It’s also rumoured that from 10.30am Santa and some of his elves may test the Wildlands Zip ‘n’ Trek course on a couple of occasions during the day to help him with his travel arrangements for Christmas Eve, and he’ll have a few surprises for kids there during his brief visit.
Visitors can also send their letters to Santa express to the North Pole by posting them from Wildland’s hand crafted Christmas post box. The last North Pole express collection is Sunday, December 20.
If you would like to support Cope Galway, please do come, come on down to Wildlands and enjoy a tea, coffee, mulled wine or beverage from the Olive Tree Kitchen festive drinks menu to go with a hot mince pie to warm you up.
