Project Philippines continues.
The sixth day of the project saw the Rovers Go Wild team spend a third day with the charity, Little Children of the Philippines. The team were welcomed again with a fantastic reception from all the children and staff, with many of the children having memorised the names of everyone from the team.
The day saw the team travel to a local beach area to join the children in taking part in sporting and social activities. The aim of the day was to informally interact with the children and have staff leading on sporting activities such as football, volleyball and baseball.
DRFC Student Bradley McFadden said, “To see the children playing and sharing the sporting equipment with each other has been fantastic, a lot of the children show excellent patience when waiting for their turn and when helping the other children take part.”
The charity also brought along to the beach a music player, allowing representatives of both Npower and Doncaster Rovers Foundation to showcase their dancing skills. The team had lunch with the staff and the children from the charity, giving everyone a good chance to talk and interact with the hosts.
Following the beautifully prepared dinner, the team were asked to hand out backpacks to the children – courtesy of money raised and donated from the Rovers Go Wild project, once again the team were so grateful that their fundraising could help bring so many smiles to the children’s faces.
Cobhan Walker, DRFC Student said, “It was great to see the children receive their backpacks, all the packs had many familiar cartoons or comic book characters on them, and their reactions upon receiving them was really special.”
The team will continue to work with the Little Children of the Philippines for a further day. For further updates follow the Foundation on Twitter @drfc_foundation.
