Approximately 154 people attended the SRCWA Livelighter Seniors Activity -Information day at Belmont Oasis on 15th May 2019. This event was sponsored by LiveLighter Healthway, organised by SRCWA in partnership with the City of Belmont. The event showcases agencies and activities in the local Belmont area and also gave participants the opportunity to try different recreational activities. Static displays with a variety of information were on hand from; Advocare, Alzheimers WA, Apia, BallroomFit, Belmont Senior Citizens Club, Bladder & Bowel Health Australia, Chung Wah Community & Aged Care, City of Belmont, City of Belmont RSL Sub-Branch, Faulkner Park Retirement Estate, Harman Park Community Centre, Hearing Life, Home Instead, Seniors Care, Mens Shed, Mole Patrol, Silver Chain, Southern Plus, SRCWA, Transwa, Umbrella Multicultural Community Care, Unicare Health and WA Primary Health Alliance (My Health Record).
SRCWA Executive Officer Dawn Yates introduced City of Belmont Seniors & Disability Engagement Officer Helen O’Sullivan to open the proceedings and then invited the participants to take part in Pole Walking, Exergaming, Giant Darts, Bob (Table Billiards), Heart Sport Activities, Seated Hockey, Indoor Bocce, Carpet Golf, Carpet Bowls and more.
After a morning of engaging activities participants were treated to a healthy lunch of sandwiches, hot food and fruit. During the lunch break participants were invited to join in an interactive demonstration of “Ballroom Fit” followed by Dance Sport and Para Dance Sport which had the audience mesmerised with their moves. Para Dance Sport is an elegant, graceful and stylish sport which includes athletes with a physical impairment and was amazing to watch.
SRCWA would like to thank Helen from the City of Belmont, City of Belmont Staff, and SRCWA’s hard working volunteers and staff for helping to make this event a great success. We would also like to make a special thank you to the trustees from Wooraloo Prison Farm for their outstanding assistance throughout the day.
