Thanks to your help our summer programme kicked off at Trinity Fields with a jam-packed few days full of sports, board games and bracelet making. The young people enjoyed the sunshine (and rain!) with highlights including dodgeball, archery and British Bulldog. Uno cards were played, Guess Who characters were speculated, and Jenga towers were toppled all week.
The young people got their creative juices flowing during the Wednesday Art in the Park sessions, making everything from masks to dream catchers. On Thursday of week one the families took a trip to Littlehampton Beach, where the young people played in the water and built sandcastles, whilst the parents relaxed on the beach, ate hot fresh doughnuts and enjoyed time with one another. One family member told us that she “loved the community aspect of the day and the fun”.
Week two saw more sports and games at Trinity Fields, with an extra special treat for the Monday Year 9+ group who ate an incredible lunch made by Majeda from the Syrian Sunflower Kitchen. During the week the young people visited the secret garden at Trinity Fields enjoying some time to relax after an energetic morning of sport. The sports coaches led lively group games that got everyone involved, with one young person telling us that he “enjoyed everything about the sports days, especially the football”.
To round off week two, the young people went on an exhilarating trip to Adventure Island theme park. The favourites included the Rage rollercoaster, the Ramba Zamba skater and the Skydrop ride. One young person told us she had “the best day ever”. We are very excited about what the next two weeks of fun have in store.
Thank you again for your support, and that of The Childhood Trust and Francis Holland School.
We couldn’t organise the summer we have without your generosity.
