Australian children are some of the hardest-hit by the Australian bushfires. And so it was Cook Islands children who were at the forefront of this community’s drive to raise money to support those left homeless by the fires. 

 

The fundraising effort that Cook Islands police organised this week came not only with a profitable car wash and runathon – but also with some fun games for the kids.

With games ranging from ring toss to cup pong, the small square of the police courtyard was packed with all sorts of fun games and activities for our young ones to enjoy.

Some kids didn’t mind sitting still and getting artwork painted on their faces at the ever-popular face-painting stall, while others preferred to knock down some cups or grab a sausage sizzle from the tent next door.

Even sitting on the side of the stage and watching the band play was an exciting experience for them.

But it wasn’t just fun and games all day. Some of our youth took time to help out with the volunteer efforts, especially the runathon and car wash.
