A call has sounded for Lego lovers to get creative and build displays for Wyndham Brickfest.
The inaugural event will be held over two days at Thomas Carr College next weekend and organisers want more displays to exhibit.
Event chair Andrew Elsbury said the Lego expo aimed to unite enthusiasts from all over the west while raising money for Werribee Mercy Hospital’s new paediatric ward.
“The more money we raise means additional services and improved experiences for the children in our community who need to use our hospital,” Mr Elsbury said.
He said there was still room for more exhibitors and displays.
“We need as many displays as we can get,” Mr Elsbury said.
“There will be plenty going on at the event including a STEM program, modelling competitions and kids area.
“We are also looking for donations of Lego to assist our friend Ferris Knight who will be making a world record attempt at walking on Lego to highlight mental health as both cause pain to people … she will be doing her walk on September 15 as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival.”
Mr Elsbury has been hooked on Lego since he was a child.
“My first Lego set was a police car and my affinity for the brick was born,” he said.
