Participants were involved in a range of activities and games with children and elderly. The first event to kick off the day was a mass 100m relay, where volunteers passed paper balls with paper sticks between children and the elderly. The next activity were relay races on the stadium track, and whilst the children and volunteers ran 800m, the elederly ran 50m. Our volunteers guided children in the paper airplane activity, played dodge balls and helped them create balloon sculptures.
Over lunch, children were encouraged to serve the elderly which reinforced the event theme of “Give and not just receive”. Despite a brief period of rain during the event, the participants and volunteers all left with a big smile at the end of the day.
