Athlone Towncentre Shopping Centre is this year delighted to participate in Wear Orange Day on Sunday, 1st of May in support of the Join Our Boys Trust to raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Join the centre team on Sunday, 1st of May from 2-4 pm and help to raise some much-needed funds for the Join Our Boys Trust in the fight against DMD, a fatal neuromuscular disease that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys and which currently has no cure.
Touched by the journey of the Naughton family from Roscommon whose three sons were diagnosed with DMD in 2012, Athlone Towncentre is hosting a Funky Family Photo Event to raise funds for the charity. Come along on the day and have your photo taken in centre by Athlone Towncentre’s photographer.
Simply make a small donation to the charity and receive an instant, professional print. There’s a range of novel props to choose from as well as spot prizes on the day also, especially for those wearing orange.
Every cent raised as part of the event goes directly to the Join Our Boys Trust. For further information on the trust and the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy see www.joinourboys.org.
