Capstone’s Summer of Fun!
Care Leavers Group, Bowling and trampolining!
In July we held a Care Leavers Group activity, where three young people met a Care Leaver, Bardhyl, who spoke about his life, how he found it challenging moving to the UK, where he spoke no English. Bardhyl found playing sport enabled him to become part of a group, where he developed his English language and social skills. After a Pizza lunch, the young people created and decorated a working clock, mobile phone numbers were exchanged and they all left together, heading for the station, chatting away. S stated “I enjoyed the workshop because I interacted with people who I can relate too”
At the start of the summer holidays, we headed to the MFA Bowling Alley, Luton, with eleven young people and nine carers, we enjoyed a game of bowling followed by lunch. E commented “we all played together, had a good time and met new people”.
Next, we were in Croydon at the Oxygen Trampoline Park, with six young people and four carers. One carer took three buses to get to the venue and her young person had never been on a trampoline before, what a fantastic new experience! H said “I enjoyed the activity and it allowed me to meet new people, who I will keep in touch with”.
Then we bowled at Hollywood Bowl in Finchley, where ten young people and four carers joined in the fun. Comments from young people included “today was really fun because I met other people, played bowling and had a lovely burger”, “I have enjoyed everything and would love to come again.”, “ This was amazing, fun and crazy”Back to news
