London Sea Life Centre put on an amazing event for Father’s Day weekend and raised a staggering £442 to go towards The Seahorse Trust’s work. Bex and Jenny and the events team organized this well-attended event some time ago and have worked so hard getting it together.
Amongst the incredible events they put on were:
- Name a seahorse – which was popular!
- A ‘Guess how many babies in dad’s pouch’ competition with a male seahorse with a jar full of glass beads. Everyone loved it and the closest guess won a Snorkel with Sharks experience for 2.
- They sold seahorsey Father’s Day cards in exchange for donations.
- The did lots of daily seahorse talks during which they got a dad volunteer to come up and gradually dressed him in a silly seahorse costume as they were talking about the different body parts (we’ve got a tail, a crown, a snout, a pouch etc) And we gave a prize mug to all the volunteers.
It was an exciting weekend and there are already plans to repeat it next year.
Here at the trust we would like to offer a massive thank you to Bex and Jenny and to all the team at London and many thanks to Sea Life for their continued support for our work.
