Munster Family Fun Day - Kartworld Watergrasshill (4th August 2016)

Many thanks to foster carers, young people, and the Staff of Kartworld for a great day of activities on our recent fun day.

Over 70 participants enjoyed karting, archery, sumo wrestling, laser target shooting, and carnival games. A surprise highlight was the egg launch challenge at the end where engineering skills came to the fore! 

Five Rivers Fostering will be having another event before Christmas and foster family link workers will confirm the date during monthly meetings.

Family Fun Day (30th of March, 2016)

Great fun was had at Ballyhass Lakes over the Easter holidays. Over 55 foster children, their friends, foster carers and foster siblings took park in kayaking, ziplines, abseiling and high wire obstacle courses. Fair play to many who repeatedly scaled the climbing pole to take the leap of faith and catch the pull up bar! Some achievement at 40 feet in the air! Great credit is due to families who travelled from as far as South and West Cork, Clare and Waterford.
