Great news for Emma Watkin fans

If your grandchild is forced to spend their birthday indoors this May then there’s good news.

Emma Wiggle is gearing up to host a virtual birthday party concert on Saturday, May 16 for those children stuck inside during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 700,000 Aussie kids have missed out on the chance to celebrate their special day with a party as a result of COVID-19 social distancing measures.

In an initiative by Best&Less, the Bestest Virtual Birthday Party event, which begins at 11 am via the retailer’s website, will feature Emma engaging in interactive games and singing songs for her fans.

Best&Less chief executive Rod Orrock revealed Emma was already preparing for the big day.

“We know that many children have had to cancel their party, and with every child across Australia invited for a fun morning, we especially hope those with birthdays from March to June will be there to celebrate and make their birthday one to remember,” Mr Orrock said.

Emma added, “Who doesn’t love a children's party? Together we can make this the biggest, bestest party ever! Can’t wait to see you all there!”

To attend the event, parents and grandparents must register children at www.bestandless.com.au by May 10.
