Family Fun Day- Fun for all – 18/09/15

fun-day

As a company here at Henry Boot Construction we like to help charities and organise fundraising days, the Sheffield Parent Carer Forum are one of the many charities we have helped by organising volunteers to go and help with the family fun day.

Family fun day is all about letting families with a disabled child or children enjoy fun activities as a family, and to do this Henry Boot Construction had volunteers to go and help with the many activities the charity had to offer. The aim was to make sure children and families don’t feel they can’t enjoy the fun activities as a family because they need some extra support and that’s where our volunteers came in.

Activities that our volunteers helped with was things such as football, tennis and cricket which is on the more sporty side but also we had the alternative activities such as dance and African drumming workshops and bungee trampolines. Also there was the more creative side of things like face painting, temporary tattoos, nail art and arts and crafts.

 “Since the fun day took place during the summer holidays, most of our regular volunteers (who are all parents of disabled children) were tied up with their caring duties. Without the volunteers from companies like Henry Boot, this event couldn’t have happened. The feedback we got from families was amazing – 96% rated the event “Good” or “Excellent”, and many specifically mentioned how brilliant the volunteers had been. A huge thanks for all your help, and we hope we can do it again next year!”
