Bounce and boogie at Mates weekend

It was a whirlwind of bouncing, dancing and painting at the Very Special Kids Hospice Mates on the Move weekend.

The children kicked off the weekend with a messy art therapy session with the hospice Art Cabriolet therapist. The evening quickly ramped up to a dance party with a visit from DJ Captain America (Andrew Medland).

Sunday morning saw the kids enjoying a group grocery shop and picnic, and reaching for the sky at BOUNCE INC.

After an exhausting two days of activities, the weekend finished with the children creating artwork to take home to their mums.

Mates on the Move brings together children who are very mobile and have high behavioural needs requiring one-to-one care. The program enables these children to experience activities they normally would not be able to participate in.
