Independent Visiting Service Hosts Fun Day!

During the heatwave in July that now feels like a distant memory, our Independent Visiting Service in Bromley hosted a fun day for all its current matches. Despite having to rearrange at the last minute due to England getting into the World Cup quarter final, the volunteers brought their young people to Crystal Palace Park where we had a picnic. It was great for our visitors and young people to meet each other and chat about what activities they have done together.

After the picnic we sent each pair into the maze to have a race! They were also given a quiz to complete together. The quiz asked mostly asked them questions about the historical feature that Crystal Palace Park is known for; the dinosaur sculptures. The persistence of all our young people was commendable as it was very hot!

The pair that got the most questions correct won a Costa gift card to spend at a future visit. We are looking forward to our next event gathering our volunteers and young people.

The Independent Visiting Service is a befriending service for young people in care with Bromley Local Authority. We recruit adult volunteers and match one to a young person and they will visit them once a month and take them out to do activities. It is part of our care venture.
