Jumping castle fun at Very Special Kids

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

The children kicked off the weekend with a giant jumping castle on the lawn at Very Special Kids. It was fair to say everyone loved bouncing around and sliding down the big slippery slide, there was even a basketball hoop!

The jumping castle was definitely a hit, as all four children involved kept saying ‘jumping castle, jumping castle’ anytime they weren’t on it throughout the weekend.

The children were also surprised with a visit from Code Dance Group who put on a spectacular performance in the hospice. The children loved bopping around to the music and watching the colourful routine.

This weekend was made possible by the generous support of volunteers, Playcity Jumping Castles, Code Dance Group and a very special thank you to Upstream Foundation for funding the Very Special Kids Mates Weekends program.

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.
