The SRCWA LiveLighter Aged Care Games for the Peel region were held on Tuesday 13th October 2020 at the Pinjarra Recreation and Aquatic Centre.
Thanks to the efforts of WA Government, Health Workers and the Community at large we now find ourselves in an enviable position which allows us to once again to hold these amazing and much appreciated events.
SRCWA Peel Branch president Jan McGlinn and her group of dedicated volunteers were supported by Alcoa volunteers to help present an event for seniors in care which was enjoyed by all. Six teams competed in a range of activities specifically modified for seniors in care.
SRCWA Executive Officer Dawn Yates welcomed everyone and invited them to stand a join in the national anthem, she then introduced Robyn Clarke Member for Murray-Wellington to officially open the games. Dawn then invited SRCWA State President Phil Paddon (our MC for the day) to say a few words and get the games underway.
Local legend Eddie Storm OAM provided our entertainment and had people up dancing and enjoying his performance… Thank you Eddie and Vee.
Best presented team on the day (as awarded by our independent judge) was Baptistcare Graceford Facility “Mad Hatters Tea Party”, in third place was Quambie Park 1, second place was Bedingfeld “Deck of Cards” and first place by a small margin was Quambie Park 2. Our oldest competitors on the day was 100 years young, May Elvard, from Bedingfeld “Deck of Cards”. SRCWA thanks and acknowledges the hard work by the team from Alcoa Australia Staff, SRCWA State Branch volunteers and SRCWA staff who helped to make this a most enjoyable event for the participants and such a great success.
