of the face painting session with Anna Richings
What a day to keep in mind. Bursting with fun, games, prizes, food, fellowship, and memories. The Rochdale Filipino Anglo Community’s (RFAC) summer family day provided a significant experience and fun-filled activities at St Patrick’s School. Filipino families in
as well as many invited friends enjoyed a get together to commence the school holidays with a summer fiesta and indoor games. Together with their respective parents, the kids took delight by playing various Filipino games and enjoyed the company of other kids after a long school term that ended late last month. Rochdale, England
Spearheaded by the hardworking officers of RFAC, the main objective of the event was to continue uniting Filipino families and allow their children to appreciate Filipino culture and values through sports and friendly games. It was a huge success and everybody went home with a grateful smile and content heart, and hoping that activities like this could continuously inspire Filipino families to feel at home in spite of the distance from the home country. Our sincere thanks to the officers who shared their time and resources to make the event a memorable one.
