Gazillion Bubbles joins Peter Andre and a host of other famous names to support Children’s Activities Week.

Funrise International has joined forces with Children’s Activities Week (CAW) to help highlight the positive impact children’s activities have on physical and mental health and well-being.

Children’s Activities Week runs from 30th April – 4th May and is a new national event celebrating the thousands of activities, clubs and classes which help millions of children stay fit, healthy, engaged and happy – and now, Funrise, with its Gazillion Bubbles brand, has signed up to be part of the action.

Over the seven day period around 200,000 children are expected to participate in the planned activities which include a UK wide themed dress up competition, a world record attempt and more.

Gazillion Bubbles will have a presence in all aspects of CAW including providing prizes for winners of the dress up competition, being part of the one hour Twitter takeover on 24th April, prize sponsoring for the world record attempt on 30th April and creating a bubbly entrance with the Gazillion Whirlwind Bubbles Machines at the Under1Roof Children’s Activities Week finale party.

James Dixon, commercial director UK & Ireland, Funrise International commented: “We are thrilled to be taking part in the UK’s first Children’s Activities Week, and were immediately drawn to this year’s #WatchMeFly theme as a perfect fit for our Gazillion Bubbles collection. Funrise has always tried to play a part in good cause events and what better way than celebrating these activity clubs, which are so important for children’s physical and mental health.”
