It’s spooky season and at LauraLynn we got into the spirit of it all with our very first Halloween Parade this week. The school of Engineering students from Technological University Dublin were once again on hand this year to create wheelchair accessible costumes for some of the children who avail of LauraLynn’s care.
This collaborative process with TUD has led to some tremendously creative finished looks. No matter a child's level of mobility, LauraLynn’s aim is that children and families are inspired and feel included by these amazing and creative wheelchair costumes.
The children and families showed off these creations with a very special Halloween Parade around the hospice grounds and gardens. The inaugural Halloween Parade was led by Ryan Tubridy who joined the celebrations in the form of a Parade Marshall.
Entertainment was provided by CMD Danceschool who performed ‘Thriller’, and everyone kept warm with some delicious coffee and hot chocolate kindly supplied by ‘Brother Bean’.
The local Gardaí assisted with the parade, adding to the fun and excitement by leading the crowd around the gardens in one of their garda cars.
LauraLynn would like to say a heartfelt thank to everyone who made it such a fun-filled event and a special thank to Ryan Tubridy for sprinkling some added magic to the day.
