Our looked after children and foster carers from Hampshire and Dorset spent a wonderful day at the Dorset Water Park on Saturday 28th. July.
The day kicked off at 11am with children and carers scrambling over the enormous inflatables on the lake, followed a picnic under a gazebo. The picnic provided the perfect opportunity for carers and young people to catch and enjoy the laid-back setting of the water park. It was lovely to see such an excellent turnout by carers and young people, and the feedback from all who attended was exceptionally positive.
The Watlings family said:
“Today we went to the Dorset Water Park. We had such a brilliant time, even our 6 year old daughter was able to take part for the first time, and she loved it. Thank you Capstone, for a great day, our family love the days organised by the social workers 👍”. Mia, aged 6 added, “I liked the life guard with the long hair, he was so nice and held my hand to help me across the difficult bits”.
The Friberg family added:
“We really enjoyed ourselves even though I didn’t take part in the activity, I had great fun watching everyone else. We really enjoy it when Capstone arrange days out, it’s a great opportunity to relax and have fun with the other carers. The children really enjoy seeing the other children, my own birth children enjoy meeting up with foster children we have had on respite in the past and our foster child enjoys mixing with other foster children. It was a nice change to do something different.”
We as a team would like to thank all those who attended, and we’d also like to thank all the foster carers who attended for their continued work and support with their young people. A special thanks goes to Nikki Youngs, who singlehandedly organised the entire day.
