Mullingar woman offers board game investment

“Trust me, you will enjoy this game,” says Ursula Kane Cafferty in an online video introducing ‘ActiVacation’.

Ursula would be familiar to some readers. Originally from Dominick Street, she spent many years working in the health service in Mullingar, Tullamore, and Zambia as a nurse and midwife, before moving to administration and project management.

She was actively involved in the development, equipping and commissioning of phases one and two of the Midland Regional Hospital.

Her book ‘Suitcase Number Seven – a rugby story with a difference’ was released in 2005 to great acclaim countrywide.

Ursula is currently running a crowd funding campaign in order to produce a limited edition (500) of a new board game ‘ActiVacation’ for launch later in the year in Mullingar.

The trademark has been registered, the logo, card and board designs are complete and the game is production ready.

Individuals or companies who pledge funding can choose a reward e.g. for €60 your copy of the game would have a unique, first edition certified product number and your name would be included in the rule book for posterity. Sponsorship opportunities are available for €1000. Further details, including a video, can be seen at https://fundit.ie/project/activacation--the-family-board-game.

All pledges are welcome (whether personal or corporate), Ursula said.
