It was an explosion of colour, excitement and competition at this year’s much loved and highly anticipated Afford
FUNATHON! Held at Blacktown Sports Park this week, Afford clients, staff and friends and family attended the event to enjoy a fun-filled day of activities while also getting to meet some special sporting celebrities.
The day was brimming with sunshine as clients donned their team colours in amazing Afford Funathon t-shirts and
took to the field. There were more activities than ever before for clients to enjoy including a climbing wall, jumping
castle, t-ball, big game bowling, on field disco and more.
Many clients were able to meet and take a photo with their sporting idols with appearances from the Wests Tigers
and Western Sydney Wanderers, and many took the opportunity to get a happy snap with the Penrith Panthers
Competition was tough between ADEs and Day programs. Minchinbury ADE triumphed in the ADE competition, while Chipping Norton Day Program was victorious in the Day Program race. In the usual Afford spirit, everyone finished with smiles and congratulated the winners, while also acknowledging the efforts of all who took part.
The residents of Dolphin Cove and Billabong enjoyed playing t-ball, while others put their skills to the test at the
Wanderers goal kicking activity. Lunch was a welcome break after a jam-packed day of activity and excitement and
everyone relaxed over a sausage sizzle lunch, before getting back into gear for the flu tug race.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who contributed to this magnificent Funathon for the enjoyment of Afford
clients. Go Afford!
