While weather conditions sadly forced the cancellation of some outdoor events, the local community turned out in numbers in a show of incredible support for the event.
South Roscommon FRC Project Co-ordinator, Sarah Brennan said the team was grateful for all the support.
“We at South Roscommon Family Resource would like to sincerely thank all those who turned out for our Intercultural Family Fun Day on Saturday, August 19th,” she said.
“Despite the weather conditions, and having to cancel some of our planned outdoor activities, we had a great turnout from the community, and incredible support for the whole event.
“Lisnamult Community Sports Park is a wonderful venue, and we were fortunate to be able to move most activities indoors. Great fun was had by all with balloon modelling, face painting, Lego, board games, arts and crafts, a sensory space, visit from An Garda Síochána, and a massive spread of delicious homemade food from around the world
“Our awesome volunteers were once again out in force, generously giving up their Saturday to show us what exactly community means. We are beyond grateful for their ongoing support of everything we do.
“We were also proud to celebrate our Young Carers Project’s recent announcement as National Finalists in the National Lottery Good Causes Awards, which showcases the value of the project, and the value of the work these young people do within their homes.
“Thank you, once again, to everyone who supported us in any way to bring this event together”.
