Get your teddybears dressed up and ready for a lovely day out in Laois.
Families are invited to a special teddybears' picnic amid fields of glorious sunflowers.
The uplifting picnic will take place at Heath House in The Heath as part of a busy Laois Heritage Week.
The family friendly event is in aid of two good causes, Laois Offaly Families for Autism, and Ukrainian charities.
Picknickers can enjoy traditional Ukraine music.
It follows a similar and hugely successful event at the family farm in Heath House a year ago.
Hosted by owners Roisin and Mark O'Connell, it raised €6,000 for the LOFFA charity which supports people with Autism in Laois and Offaly.

The picnic takes place from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, August 21 at Heath House, Portlaoise R32VH28.

Donations are taken upon entry and the event is weather dependent.
Online booking is required for this event, email

Laois Heritage Week takes place from August 13 to 21, with over 40 events planned across the county celebrating nature, buildings, events and people. For a full line-up, see www.laois/heritage
