PREPARATIONS are ramping up for the Mandurah Children’s Festival with less than a month to go.

Members of Mandurah Men’s Shed have put the finishing touches on the special Imagination Station that’s up for grabs at this year’s event.

Mandurah Men’s Shed (formerly Kim’s Toyboys) have been involved with the children’s festival for many years.

The not-for-profit organisation includes about 30 retirees who use their woodworking and painting skills to create toys to donate to children in need.

Each year the group of volunteers provide free toys at the festival for children to paint, glue wheels onto and take home.

Once again, people will also be able to purchase toys from the group with proceeds going back into buying additional supplies to make more toys.

The Mandurah Children’s Festival has a long history of offering unique and fun experiences for local children and families.

This year’s event will be on Sunday, October 23 from 10am until 3pm on the eastern foreshore.

For a chance to win the unique, hand-made Imagination Station, enter the draw at the Mandurah Men’s Shed stall at the event.

The Imagination Station can be seen at sponsor Hog’s Breath Cafe during the school holidays.
