Ready, steady, get messy with the NSPCC’s Messathon this Summer!

This Summer there will be a fantastically fun event especially for families at Blaise Castle in aid of children’s charity, the NSPCC.

The NSPCC’s Messathon is a family-friendly obstacle course which challenges daring families to get as messy as possible in aid of a good cause!

The fundraiser will take place at Blaise Castle on Saturday July 29th and keen Messathletes can sign up now to take part.

Children aged 4 and above will have the chance to splatter through mud, swoosh along water slides and scramble over hay bales during the exhilarating course, providing the ultimate day out for all the family.

There will also be a ball pit, cargo net, wall climb and much, much more!

Once mums, dads and kids finish the course, they can then make a day of it by visiting the event village and enjoy a variety of attractions on offer, including food stalls, games and entertainment.

Cash raised through entry fees and sponsorship go to the NSPCC, as the children’s charity continues its fight for every childhood – no matter the obstacle.

And each participant gets a free t-shirt.

Anna Keir, NSPCC Community Fundraising Manager for Bristol, explains, “Messathon is the perfect event for bringing families together, getting them active, working as a team and of course, the one thing that most children love to do…getting messy!

“Messathletes will have a fantastic time tackling several obstacles and challenges around the course, all in aid of the NSPCC. We wish all participants good luck in their fundraising and we would like to thank them in advance for helping the charity support and protect children from abuse.”
