The community of Brooklyn is hosting a fun games day for 1300 children. The idea is to let the children be children by playing games and having a great day.


Ribbons of Joy is a community organisation based in Brooklyn, Western Cape. They have decided to host a massive games day for 1300 children. The event will be held at the local school Ysterplaat Primary School.

Children from schools in all the surrounding area’s have been invited, as well as via the radio and pamphlets. Ribbons of Joy has received an indication that about 1300 children will be attending the event with their family and friends.

We have 19 lawn games for the children, free of charge. That includes a jumping castle, inflatable ball pond, inflatable gladiator, tug of war, pogo stick race, snakes and ladders, lawn darts, large pick up sticks and many more.

The event will be feeding each child, giving them a hotdog, bag of chips and a cool drink. They will also be able to win prizes such as toys and sweets.

Aside from the fun games for the children, there will also be a market with various kinds of stalls. These stalls are offering the adults in the community to way to earn a small income by selling goods they have made or have on offer.

The event is open to receiving monetary donations to help pay towards the kids or any other form of donation is welcome as Ribbons of Joy help support the community of Brooklyn in any way they can. If you would like to help you can contact the organiser Amanda, on 0614490051 or via the Facebook page.
