Out & About

Brisbane children’s picnic fun!

In August we held our Brisbane children’s picnic and what a sensational turn out we had.

The day was a great success with many happy faces and an awful lot of laughter.

Thank you to Kim and the team from Touch Come and Try for entertaining the children with a variety of ball games and touch football drills – there were lots of smiles and laughs plus many tired children to send home.

A BIG thank you also to Sol and John, Nelda and Carol from The Rotary Club of  The Gap/Ashgrove for helping to cook and feed the masses! It was no small effort to keep the food coming but they kept going until everyone was fed!

We also had an unexpected delivery of Chobani Greek Yoghurt for sweets. Great to end the day on a sugar rush!

All in all a FABULOUS day! The weather even played nicely.

Return Serve Tennis Days

Aunties and Uncles Queensland’s program participants were given the opportunity to try their hand at tennis over the past couple of months thanks to Return Serve. These days were well attended and gave us all a chance to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Winter sun.  We also learnt some new skills along the way!

Return Serve is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to support and encourage children to give tennis a go and overcome any barriers to participation.  Aunties and Uncles looks forward to working with Return Serve in the future as we continue to support our children in the pursuit of tennis as a great sport that can be experienced in a fun and friendly environment.

Walkin on Water – Surf Day

The surf was certainly up for A&U’s “Walkin on Water” surf day recently.

Over 20 children became SurfGroms for a free afternoon of surfing and beach games with the ‘Walkin on Water’ crew.

Not only did they have a lot of fun, they also learnt a lot about staying safe in the surf.

Everyone had a GREAT day – what a wonderful opportunity for all involved… plus we may have a few aspiring surfers in our midst.

THANK YOU Jamo, Dan & Pepe – you guys were AWESOME!!
