On Saturday, October 20, the 1st Annual Family Fun Day was held at the beautiful Horseshoe Point with the disadvantaged children from the Hand to Hand Foundation being special guests. This event was arranged by some local businessmen who spared no cost to treat the children to one of the most amazing days of their lives.
With free hamburgers, hot dogs and as much candy floss and ice cream they could eat for free, this was a great start. All of the children were given money to play games, ride on the toy train and have fun on the bouncy castle. They were also transported to and from the venue in a huge double-decker bus and even this was an adventure for the children.

All day there was a competitive cricket match between the Australian and English teams. At the half time interval the children had the opportunity to play some games such as an egg and spoon race, wheelbarrow race and tug of war. At the end of day the Aussies were victorious champions.
The raffle had an incredible range of prizes and generated a lot of excitement when the prizes were drawn at the end of the day.
The proceeds of the day went to help support the Hand to Hand Foundation and the Sawang Boriboon Foundation.
