It was certainly “Fright Night” last week at Froggy’s Skate and Play when CREATE, the foundation supporting children in care, hosted their annual Halloween Party. Our club once again provided the BBQ for 180 ghosts, vampires and zombies. At Tuesday’s meeting we welcomed Tenielle Moore and Belinda Tome to share their experience working with Create Foundation Tasmania. With 40,000 children and young people to the age of 25yrs living in foster, residential and kinship care across Australia, Create provides support and encouragement. Programmes such as Speak Up, Create Your Future and Be Heard helps to give them a voice and to reach their full potential.
