The hotter months of the year are a prime period for events in the great outdoors, physical activity under the sun and fitness within the wonderful rohe we live in! To do these things that we at times take for granted, it means we need good quality sports shoes. But for many of our VLC whanau who love to partake in physical activity, sports shoes are something that they have gone without – many not even having owned a pair of sports shoes before.
Luckily, the VLC team for the past 5 weeks have been running a Sports Shoes Co-op allowing the whanau to finally be able to purchase their own pair of shoes from Rebel Sports! Now, we don’t know about you – but by the looks on these guys’ faces, we think this has been an awesome initiative! The Vanessa Lowndes Centre is about building confidence and preparing people with mental, physical or intellectual disabilities for employment.
Well done, whanau! We are incredibly proud of your achievements and can’t wait to see you wearing your new shoes at every opportunity! The VLC whanau have been hitting the Kaiti Hill Challenge – so make sure you stop and say “Kia ora!” on your way up the maunga…
