Memory Makers Summer Activity – 14th August


Earlier this month, SMASH  organised its annual Memory Makers Summer Activity. We had 15 highly excitable young people aged 9-12 who had the whole of the swimming pool at Dorcan Recreation Complex all to themselves!  Thank you to GLL who manage the complex for providing the facilities and lifeguards for free. Our young people had a great time splashing around, making new friends and catching up with old ones. For some of our young people, this would be the only swimming they do this summer.

When we asked what the young people thought of it all, they said:

“Great!”

“Awesome!”

“Delicious!”

“Fantastic!”

After all that fun, it was time for tea. Papa Johns made our day by delivering some fantastic pizzas!! A huge thank you to Papa Johns as not only did they give us free pizza, they had to rota on extra staff to make and deliver it to us, as we needed it outside of their opening hours.
