During the Term Jaime Ritson, Dayna Barker and Emmy Aziz volunteered for Immerse (a not-for-profit foster care organisation) and participated in their Ingage programme. It was held every second Saturday with morning activities at Life and, in the afternoon we accompanied the children to a fun activity. We went ice skating, rock climbing, dancing and to an adventure park which helped us build connections with the children. This service opportunity allowed us to help children who were put into foster care feel like they are being supported by others. This was a good opportunity to realise how grateful we are and how others have had a tough upbringing. We met so many new people and built a strong connection with all the volunteers and children as part of this Ingage programme.
