"Please join us on Good Friday, 14th April 2017 as Laverton Skate Centre returns with the city's largest ever pop-up roller rink! It's all happening at Good Friday Appeal's "Kid's Day Out" to raise much-needed funds for the Royal Children's Hospital!
**AVOID SKATE HIRE QUEUE BY BRINGING YOUR OWN SKATES OR BLADES**
Laverton Skate Centre volunteers everything required for this skate event, including our time. All proceeds raised is donated to the appeal on the day.
During multiple skate sessions held across the day, we will have a huge rink for serious skaters, plus a smaller rink for younger kids & beginner skaters. Expect a top variety of music for the day, skate games, slalom skate performances, junior roller sports demonstrations and more!
Entry to a session is minimum $5 donation (per session) to the appeal and for the record, we don't like giving change, because the kids need every dollar we can raise for them! Skating multiple sessions requires multiple donations."
