2017 LiveLighter Aged Care Games Greater Geraldton Region

On the 16th May 2017 SRCWA conducted the LiveLighter Aged Care Games at the Geraldton QE11 centre.

The Geraldton Games were excellent, the enthusiasm was wonderful and there were over 12 volunteers organised by the Geraldton branch.  Also in attendance were three Aged Care students from TAFE who spent most of the day assisting the competitors. Additionally we had two boys from the local college who participated in the fun of the day.

There can be no question that everyone enjoyed the day and they all came away smiling. The most significant part of the day was when everyone was presented with medallions, one of the participants said “this is best day outing I have had this year”.

The games were opened by Councillor Bob Hall and Phil Paddon MC’d the event and also took all the volunteers through the rules and scoring the games.

It was a wonderful game with all the participants having a great time, the winners were Hill Crest Hurricanes, Juniper with 325 points; second place went to Geraldton Community Care – team Clyde with 250  points and third place went to Geraldton Community Care – team Bonnie with 243. points and the Best Presented team plaque was awarded to Hill Crest Hurricanes – Juniper.

The oldest person competing on the day was Flo Weston 93 years young who was part of the Bonnie team.

Congratulations to all the participants for coming and having a go and a big thank you to Phil & Pat Paddon, Quentin Smythe and Lee Patrick who travelled from Perth to assist with the games and also to Christine Mullender, Greater Geraldton Branch President and the Greater Geraldton Branch committee and all the volunteers who helped make the day such a great success.

SRCWA would like to thank LiveLighter, Healthway for Sponsoring the LiveLighter Aged Care Games and to Department of Sport & Recreation and Department of Local Government and Communities for their support.
