Media Release: MaidSafe Foundation announces charity launch event in Troon


ALL interested local residents of all ages are cordially invited to The MaidSafe Foundation launch event on Thursday 5 May from 6-8pm at 72 Templehill in Troon, Ayrshire.

The evening centres around a complimentary BBQ and entry to this informal event is free.

The event will start with a short presentation on the Foundation and the plans for a Fab Lab in Troon.

A mobile Fab Lab from the Netherlands will be at the event so that all guests can view the facilities and gauge the benefits this can provide to the local community.

Children are very welcome and there will be plenty of activities (bouncy castle, face painting, science games) to keep them occupied.
