At The Dad Network we believe that #everydad matters! That’s why we’re celebrating Father’s Day with a bang!
Father’s Day is the biggest day of the year for us. It’s the day where people remember dads. Dads that are often forgotten about for the rest of the year, but not by us. So, in honour of Father’s Day we’re gathering dads from all over the country to central London, to celebrate being dads. The Dad Network is launching:
Day of the Dad!
We haven’t ever come across a Fathers Day event before, so we are taking the bull by the horns and running one ourselves.
This free event is on 13th June 2015 from 12:30 – 17:30. It will be held on a newly renovated river boat, overlooking the Millennium Eye on London, called The Tattershall Castle.
The agenda: to simply meet other dads over a drink and your favourite food and take some well deserved time out to socialise with other dads! We want to have a break from trying to send a text to your pal whilst trying to wipe a bum and change a nappy or fix an action man! We asked our network of 760 dads what they’d like to do and they said they want to ‘hang out’ with other dads, simple. So that’s what we’re doing.
Plus, if you come along, you’ll get yourself a free goodie bag filled with some great dad bits and bobs!
If you’re a dad of any sort, you’re more than welcome to come along. Single dads, foster dads, step dads, adoptive dads and expectant dads! If you’re a dad, come along.
And, although we love our kids, you’ll be pleased to know that this is a dads only event! So unless your child is also a dad… you’ll have to leave them at home!
We want to also say a huge thank you to our sponsors for the event, Tommee Tippee and Ella’s Kitchen. We love working with both Tommee Tippee and Ella’s Kitchen and have done for a while now. They’re great companies that are hugely supportive and encouraging of dads getting involved in family life. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to run this event.
We’re also thrilled to be teaming up with The Lullaby Trust as our official charity for the event. They do such great work all over the UK and are running a campaign called Beards for Babies during June which we’ll be supporting. The Lullaby Trust will be joining us at Day of the Dad.
