The start of August saw the Olympics get underway, so to celebrate it in the best way possible we had our own themed session to match and thankfully with glorious weather too. With an indoor sports course for the children to complete and related arts and crafts like making an Olympic Torch, it made for a great afternoon for children and adults alike.
We even had local Games Maker Brian Challis join us for the session, who was involved at London 2012 and he was on hand to give out medals on the day to our little Olympians.
The excellent Dan Penfold and MPH Football also joined us for the afternoon and brought along their Speedcage for the children to challenge. Be it by striking a football or throwing tennis balls and bull nose javelins, it was a huge amount of fun for everyone and a great way for the children to see if they could beat their previous score across the afternoon.
A very memorable afternoon.
Justin Heron, Operations Manager for LMCEN said; “Once again it was great to see involvement from local people and companies in what we do and a lot of enjoyment was taken by everyone who attended. We really can’t recommend MPH Football highly enough, the speedcage was very engaging for the children and they were simply brilliant across all the different ages, abilities and additional needs that we support.”
Dan Penfold, Director of MPH Football said; “I was really impressed with Little Miracles and all of the staff who provide such great care and fun for all of the children who attend their sessions. Speaking with Justin about what the charity does and aims to do, I can tell they are great individuals and I will definitely be happy to come back and help out again.”
