Enham Trust hosted the first ever Enham Olympics on Friday 22nd August for clients and villagers in Enham Alamein, Hampshire.
There were 9 teams across the care homes, the community and Weston Court. Teams competed in various games including archery, javelin, boccia, giant jenga, a very competitive looking snakes and ladders and much more. To top it all off Enham Trust hosted a sizzling barbecue in the sun.
An attendee commented: “The Enham Olympics is more than just Enham Trust providing care and support for their disabled and disadvantaged clients. It’s about providing them with that little bit more that statutory funding does not cover.”
With participants having varying abilities, points were awarded based on taking part in the games. Emily (pictured) proudly accepted the trophy for first prize on behalf of the care home, Elizabeth House. Huge congratulations to the team and to all the staff and clients who took part.
Event organiser, Adele Daly said: “Enham Olympics was a huge success. Everyone had a lovely time. The clients had fun and that’s what it is all about. With the commitment and support of our volunteers we were able to pull off the first of many Enham Olympics. The clients and the community got a real sense of achievement.”
