PeacePlayers International – Northern Ireland spent their May bank holiday, a day meant for rest and relaxation, working at the Stormont Estate’s Family Fun Day! Working in conjunction with the BBC’s Children in Need, the day was a great outing for families and children to come to the Estate and enjoy a host of different activities and games, including shooting hoops with PPI-NI!
PPI-NI staff members set up two basketball hoops in the PlayBall at the Pavilion Stormont sports complex. PlayBall is a state-of-the-art sports facility, providing athletic space for all levels and types of sport, sharing space with both communities in Northern Ireland. Though basketball isn’t the most popular sport in the country, the PPI-NI activity space was packed all day! Kids took part in learning how to shoot (using B.E.E.F.), played in a shooting competition and tried their best to win a prize. All had a great day – three cheers for a great bank holiday!
