To celebrate the end of the year, the VOYCE team joined Oranga Tamariki, Open Home Foundation and Caring Families Aotearoa for a picnic in the park in Nelson. This event was a connection point for the teams to see one another for the end of the year. Time was spent thanking caregivers for their mahi and giving rangatahi a space to come together and have fun. The tamariki in attendance were mostly ages 1 to 10.
The VOYCE team took along a bubble station to create massive bubbles with, which was a big hit. All ranges got involved, giving it a go, and even the tiny ones had fun splashing about in the bubble mixture. It was a little chaotic but so much fun. It was lovely to see how much joy they got when they finally made big bubbles, and then everyone around got to race to try and pop them first.
