On Saturday the 5th March we had our March Sports and Recreation Event. For this event we had limited space due to other events happening at the Stellenbosch University’s Sport Science Department but this did not dampen the enthusiasm for the event.
Tembaletu School, Athlone School for the Blind as well as Bizweni Centre once again brought their learners. Senecio joined us for the first time and brought children and parents from their Macassar outreach program. They sent us some feedback after the
‘Thank you for a wonderful sports and recreation event! All of the beneficiaries had a great time and we are so glad you could accommodate us on such short notice. For some children it was their first ever outing out of Macassar. Everything was very well organized and on time. The outdoor activities were appropriate for our more mobile kids and it seemed that they had a lot of fun. There were some really great ideas for activities for the more severely disabled. Well done!!’
We want to thank all who were involved in the event as well as those who supported our Sponsor a Child Campaign through which we raised enough money to sponsor 37 kids!! Thank you also to the Stellenbosch Sports Dept and their students who ran the activities on the day.
Our next event will be in a Paralympic celebration event in September.
