To celebrate World Children’s Day today (Friday 20th November), Karen Michie of Overgate was joined by local Dundee toddlers Ross Ramsay and Noah Hajri (both 2.5 years old).

The centre has joined the awareness-raising efforts of UNICEF this year by turning the lighting on the mall blue for the day, as well as dressing the Customer Service Desk in a blue theme.

World Children’s Day is an occasion to celebrate the power of children to change the world with the colour blue being a symbolic expression of hope and support for children’s rights.

UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. The globally-celebrated World Children’s Day takes place annually to mark the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  It is a day for children by children – a day to imagine a better future for every child.

Malcolm Angus, Centre Manager of Overgate commented:

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation for children and Overgate is delighted to be helping raise awareness of the tremendous work UNICEF does on World Children’s Day by turning key areas of the centre blue for the day.”
