THE fourth annual Logan’s Family Fun Day – in memory of Moray tot Logan Main and other children who have died – will take place at Lossiemouth Playing Fields this Sunday.
The afternoon will begin with an emotional singing performance by Tish Tindall followed by a spectacular 30 minute singing and dancing medley by Rock Academy Performing Arts including a choir performing Logan’s Song.
Logan’s presence is never far away on the day, with a balloon release in his memory by parents Christopher and Angela.
The youngster died on June 30, 2009 after bravely battling neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. Logan’s Fund has supported other children facing serious illness and their families.
This year for the first time there will be a tent with images of Logan and his story along with the images and stories of other children from this area who have bravely battled life-threatening illnesses.
Said organiser Cameron Mackintosh: "This tent is sure to stir emotions as many of the stories don’t have happy endings.
"The balloon release is really special because it’s a lovely thing for people to do for all their loved ones who are no longer with us but always remembered."
The main emphasis of the day is having fun and raising money for good causes. The fun kicks off around mid-day and continues until 5pm.
The accompanying car boot sale starts at 10am and costs only £5 for a pitch.
Entry to the Fun Day is completely free.
There will be a full programme of ring-side entertainment. These include displays by Moray Tribal Belly Dance group Chimera, Kaizen Kickboxing Studio and Prima Dance who boast in their ranks the Under 10 World Premier Champion who dances under the name Miss Kizzi Pink.
All-comers are welcome to take part in the crazy tug-o-war and the ‘Its a Total Knockout’.
There will be a very secret and special guest arriving in style at the fun day at 3pm.
There will be a great variety of stalls for people to visit including contributions from Keane’s Stars to raise money for their Kilimanjaro KiltWalk Trip, The Aila Coull Foundation, Action Marine Park and also some arts and craft stalls. Knockando Woolmill’s stall is sure to prove to be a hit with the fun and educational ‘From Flock to Fabric’ which will include a live sheep.
Logan’s Fund will also be running a craft tent, tea, coffee and cake dining experience and a BBQ.
Visitors can enjoy relaxation treatments such as Indian head massage, reflexology and Hopi ear candles.
Also Eco Wash Elgin will be in attendance providing environmentally-friendly car washes to give your car a bit of sparkle.
Wave Radio’s outside broadcast unit will be gelling the whole day together with fell good summer music and commentary.
