Fun Day Out for Our Special Children

August 11, 2017 at 8:28 AM

We are an informal Interfaith Friendship Group (IFG) with the objective of diverse faith groups and community groups to join hands with each other and contribute to ‘National Unity and a Caring Society’. This is mainly to foster unity through joint community projects to serve the community.

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.

Please see attached Souvenir from the 2016 event.

The 2017 Fun Day Out for Our Special Children is to be held on Sunday 3 Sep 2017 at the North Shore Event Centre. Flyer attached.

This Fun Day is a Free Community Event (Access for All) where able-bodies come together with those with some form disability (Physical and Intellectual) in a safe, loving environment, to celebrate our special children, their caregivers, parents and families.

This is not a fundraising event, and there is no charge to have an information stall. We invite you to provide an information stall (and if possible an activity) to promote your service and entertain our special children on the day.

Grateful if you could kindly share this information widely with families and other networks that would benefit.

Thank you
