The Interfaith Friendship Group (IFG) launched its first joint community program in partnership with Kaipataki Community Facilities Trust, PHAB (Physically Disabled and Able Bodied Association) and Kaipataki Local Board, Auckland Council – “Fun Day Out for Our Special Children” at the North Shore Event Centre on 4 September 2016.
The main objectives set and achieved for this event were to:
Celebrate special children, their caregivers, parents and their families, with a Fun Day Out in a safe, loving environment.
Provide information on special needs resources and support available in the community.
Provide opportunity for different faith and community groups to work together to serve the community, building bridges promoting unity and harmony.
This Free Event had twenty-two stalls of fun, creative, challenging activities and lots of entertainment; twenty stalls from community support agencies providing valuable information on special needs; a food court that served a wide assortment of mouthwatering food, creating a very memorable and joyful day for everyone involved.
The Organisers express their sincere gratitude to all the volunteers and contributors who worked tirelessly, shared unconditional love and generosity to make this ‘Fun Day Out’ a Success.
Finally, a big thank you to everyone in the community for coming along and supporting this event.
