AU – RRT Melbourne supports Create Foundation at Oakleigh Ice Rink July 2016

As the car park at Olympic Ice Skating Centre in Oakleigh quickly filled on Friday 8th July 2016 for an event organised by Create Foundation, it was impressive to see these foster kids and their carers/parents emerge from their cars.  A lot of care and time had gone into giving these kids a wonderful morning – they were wearing fancy dress of all variations!

Create Foundation is the national peak consumer body representing the voices of children and young people with an out-of-home experience.  They are helping to give kids in foster care a better start to life.  They believe they should all be given the opportunity to reach their full potential!  They offer lots of support which helps these children to build self-confidence, self-esteem and skills that enable them to have a voice and be heard.

They arranged this event at the Ice Rink to encourage these children and connect them with others.   It was such a fun day for the last day of the school holidays!

RRT Melbourne provided hot sausage snacks freshly cooked on the spot, which were very welcome by both kids and adults after being in the ice.  Some came back for seconds and even thirds!

It was noticeable that these kids were polite and very thankful – a worthy tribute to their wonderful carers!

RRT loves to support Create Foundation and also many other worthy charities, and look forward to working with them in future events.
