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

The new national event will run from April 30th to May 4th, and will see thousands of activities, clubs and classes across the nation children stay fit, healthy, engaged and happy. 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 so much more. With no charge to be part of the action and so much to enjoy and benefit from, it’s no surprise that Children’s Activities Week is set to be an inspiring and remarkable event.

"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," said James Dixon, commercial director, UK and Ireland at Funrise.

"Funrise has always strived to be part of good cause events and what better way than celebrating these activity clubs that are so important for children’s physical and mental health."    

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 April 24th, Prize sponsoring for the World Record attempt on April 30th and creating an entrance with the Gazillion Whirlwind Bubbles Machines at the Under1Roof Children’s Activities Week finale party.
