Apache Pizza Balbriggan – “Remember Us” Event
Every year, Apache Pizza Balbriggan host an evening of Christmas fun, games, colouring competitions and of course plenty of pizza for Remember Us! On the 14th of December, the Cool Gang from Remember Us join all the team at Apache Pizza Balbriggan to visit Santa and receive gifts from the big man himself. As Apache Pizza is a Patron for Remember Us, we look forward to hosting this evening every year!
The Cool Gang get together for all sorts of activities from dancing, Tae-Kwon-Do, circus skills and evenings at Apache Pizza Balbriggan. Thanks to the amazing work of founder of Remember Us, Nora Roban, all volunteers and the Apache team the Cool Gang had a jam packed evening of Christmas fun and food!
The Cool Gang had a very busy evening as there was stiff competition for the prize for the colouring competition instore. ‘’All the kids were clapping and screaming for their favourite picture, all so happy’’ said Sammy. The winner of the competition was Shola!
Santa Claus (played by staff member James) dropped in despite being very busy getting ready for the big day. Everyone from the Cool Gang got the chance to tell Santa what they would like to receive this year and got a little gift in return. Everybody was in the Christmas spirit after Santa’s visit and ‘’without a doubt he left everyone smiling’’ – Sammy.
After all the Christmas antics, everybody tucked into Apache Pizza’s Really Big Deal which went down a treat.
Sammy and all the staff from Apache Pizza Balbriggan would like to say a ‘’huge thank you to all volunteers who helped hugely on the night to maintain smooth running and success and we look forward to having you all back next year to do all again.’’
