A day to remember – 55 enthusiastic learners from Ilitha Family Learning Educare in Khayelitsha were treated to a day out at The Rotary Blue Train Park in Sea Point.
Many children living in impoverished areas never get the opportunity to enjoy what it really means to be young by playing until their heart is content. But last week, learners from Ilitha Family Learning Educare had a great opportunity to be able to visit the Blue Train Park.
It takes incredible people with huge hearts to offer their time and energy in giving these children the gift of laughter, and the Rotary Club of Sea Point is a great example of this community involvement.
The Rotary Club of Sea Point together with Peninsula Beverages (PenBev – local bottler and distributor of The Coca-Cola Company products in the Western and Northern Cape) treated 55 children from Ilitha Family Learning Educare in Khayelitsha to a day out at the Rotary Blue Train Park in Sea Point so they could play until their legs were tired.
The day began with a chorus of beautiful song from the children aged two to five as they stepped off the bus into the park. From the moment they saw the jumping castles, swings and mini train – the excitement got the better of them as they sprinted hysterically to the play areas.
The children spent almost four glorious hours playing and having fun. During the festivities, they were served a delicious lunch, fruit and refreshments of Bonaqua water sponsored by PenBev. The Rotary Club of Sea Point organised the outing for the children and made sure it was a day to remember.
PenBev’s Corporate Communications Manager, Denise Behrens, comments, “We have worked with Gavin and his team at the Rotary Club of Sea Point on the Blue Train experience for a number of years, and support many outreach programmes for disadvantaged children. We are pleased to be in a position where we are able to help with these initiatives.”
