DRC/ AFFIT 'Fun Day'

On Saturday the 'DRC Youth Project' and 'AFFIT' held a 'Fun Day' in Yoker. We were blessed with great weather and a brilliant turn out from the local community who had a great time. We would like to thank Brian and AFFIT 'North West Recovery Communities', Cope Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue's Knightswood Station, the DRC Environment Trust, NHS Smoking Cessation, Yoker Community Campus and all the young people for volunteering to help make the event such a great success. 

Throughout the day we arranged some old school sports activities to keep everyone on their toes! As well as 'beat the goalie' we held a few rounds of the sack race and the egg 'n' spoon race. These races were very competitive! We had a few dodgy tactics being used to get over the finishing line but all done in good spirit. Well done to everyone who took part.

We would like to thank the fire fighters from Scottish Fire and Rescue's Knightswood Station for visiting our Fun Day. After showing everyone around the fire engine they soaked anyone who needed cooling down. A great way to end the day. 

We were joined by some very talented people during the Fun Day. We'd like to thank our face painter Michelle Lynch for the fantastic artwork she created. The queues for Michelle's stall were continuously busy and quite rightly so. The face paint looked magic and the young people loved the designs. 

There were plenty of opportunities to get creative and take part in activities throughout the day. In the crèche area young people took part in arts and crafts activities while in the main hall everyone was welcome to test their fitness on the DRC Environment Trust's 'Pedal Power'. Pedal Power uses pedal powered electricity generators to power a smoothy machine. Using sheer will and determination, 67 people took a place on one of the bikes and powered the smoothy machine to make their very own smoothy. The hard work paid off for everyone in the end!
