PYJAMAS and teddies will be the order of the day at a fundraising picnic for a Joondalup-based charity in Henley Brook this month.

The anti-bullying organisation Kidzucate, founded by Sian Williams (9) in 2013, will hold a Teddy Bears Picnic at Swan Valley Cuddly Animal Farm on May 29.

Volunteer business development manager Maureen Taylor said people were encouraged to wear pyjamas and bring teddies to the event.

“The event is designed to be a family fun day to bring families together and strengthen relationships,” she said.

“Attractions include cuddly animals, a bouncy castle, train ride and animal patting, sausage sizzle, fairy floss, face painting and special guest appearances.

“Participants are invited to… support our winter pyjama appeal by donating a new pair of PJs.”

Funds raised will go towards the Kidzucate Youth Harm Prevention Summit, on July 1, 2017.

Mrs Taylor said about 40 youth advocates led by the Kidzucate director and Sian’s mother Azelene Williams plus ambassadors Josh Taylor and Caitlin Paroczai would research harm prevention.

“The annual summit will bring together youth from the community to work together on day-to-day issues to highlight and prevent forms of harmful behaviour,” she said.

Pyjamas collected will go to the Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Service in Joondalup.
