The SRCWA Great Southern LiveLighter Aged Care Games were back on again with a vengeance.  A huge vote of thanks to our Vice President Phil Paddon his wife Pat who made the trip from Perth and Sue Bilney from Kojonup to facilitate the games at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre.

Six teams including an Allstars Team took part in a range of games which have been modified especially for seniors in care.  It was great to see familiar faces and catch up with all the facilities staff who enthusiastically support their participants and theme their teams for the day. Apart from the very competitive nature on the day there was a lot of enthusiasm, laughter, fun and enjoyment. SRCWA thanks and acknowledges the support from the Albany Region Over 50’s Recreation Association who volunteered helping to set up and officiate on the day. SRCWA State Vice President Phil Paddon welcomed the teams and introduced City of Albany Deputy Mayor Greg Stocks to open the Great Southern LiveLighter Aged Care Games.  Entertainment was provided by “The 2 Premiers” who provided a medley of songs throughout the event. In third place was Clarence Estate “Clarence Cupids”, second place Baptistcare Bethel Bushrangers and in first place Walpole Silver Chain Walpole Stars. Best dressed team was Denmark Health Svc Day Centre Wattle Club our oldest competitor on the day Allan Brown of Clarence Cupids 95 years young.  If you would like to take part in the 2020 SRCWA Great Southern LiveLighter Aged Care Games, please contact the SRCWA office on 08 9492 9773.
