Wyndham Brickfest Returns: Join the Colorful LEGO Fan Event and Support a Worthy Cause
Preparations are in full swing for the highly anticipated annual LEGO fan event, Wyndham Brickfest, set to take place at the Library Building of Hoppers Crossing Secondary College on Saturday, June 24, and Sunday, June 25, 2023.
Wyndham Brickfest, known for its vibrant colors, creative displays, and charitable endeavors, is returning this year with a mission to support the Wyndham Health Foundation. The foundation aims to raise funds for the purchase of a Smileyscope Headset, valued at $6,270. The Smileyscope is a virtual reality (VR) headset designed to provide a distraction for children aged 4 and above during medical procedures. By reducing the need for sedatives during procedures such as stitch removal, cannula insertion, or wound cleaning, the Smileyscope helps create a more comfortable experience for young patients.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Andrew Elsbury, the President of Wyndham Brickfest Inc, stated, “Anything that eases the treatment process for children in our community is a positive development, and Wyndham Brickfest is determined to raise as much funding as possible to bring a Smileyscope to the Werribee Mercy Hospital.”
The event relies on the support of a dedicated committee and volunteers who generously contribute their time and efforts to make Wyndham Brickfest a success. Elsbury expressed his gratitude to all the committee members and helpers for their invaluable contributions to the event and the cause it supports.
Tickets for Wyndham Brickfest are currently available for purchase at www.trybooking.com/CINNF, allowing LEGO enthusiasts and families alike to secure their spots at this exciting event. In addition to ticket sales, all donations and funds raised will go directly to the Wyndham Health Foundation. Those who wish to contribute to the Smileyscope initiative can make donations to Wyndham Brickfest via bank transfer using the following details: BSB 633 000, Account Number 16792 9421.

To show appreciation for their generosity, donors have the option to be recognized on the Wyndham Brickfest website as well as on a donor board prominently displayed during the event.
As the community eagerly awaits the arrival of Wyndham Brickfest 2023, organizers and supporters alike are excited about the positive impact their efforts will have on the well-being of young patients at the Werribee Mercy Hospital. With the combination of LEGO fun and a worthy cause, this year’s event promises to be a memorable experience for all attendees.
