Children put their ‘spare’ time to good use after enjoying a fun-filled day of tenpin bowling. The trip to Superbowl UK, in Castle Quarter, Norwich, was organised for siblings who are either bereaved or have a brother or sister receiving care from EACH at The Nook.
The group featured a range of ages. They played games either side of lunch and also took part in other activities, using paper squares to make towers and completing crosswords based around Valentine’s Day.
EACH Play Specialist Clare Oakley said: “Everyone had such a fun day and our thanks go to Superbowl. They gave us their party room for free so we had a base and somewhere to rest in between getting all those strikes! There were lots of laughs, smiling faces and ‘ohs and ahs’ as the games were played. Two lucky staff members had a great day supporting the trip, in addition to some of our wonderful volunteers. There was lots of fun and friendly competition.”
The trip took place on Monday, 13th February.
EACH runs sibling days during the school holidays, for children aged five upwards. “They allow siblings to come together, have fun and make friends in a safe environment,” added Clare. “It’s a time for them to get together and meet others in similar situations to themselves.”
