Recre­ate qual­ity fam­ily time

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

A pic­ture is worth a thou­sand words.

And the Recre­ate team is hop­ing its Kings­land pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion to­mor­row will speak vol­umes.

Recre­ate is a Grey Lynn or­gan­i­sa­tion founded 12 years ago to pro­vide ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties for young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

The team now of­fers more than 200 ad­ven­ture and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grammes ev­ery year in­clud­ing white­wa­ter raft­ing, snow cav­ing, moun­tain climb­ing and bungy jumping.

Ex­hi­bi­tion or­gan­iser and pro­gramme leader Matt Alpe says the ex­hi­bi­tion is a fun way to pro­vide ‘‘visual feed­back’’ for par­tic­i­pants and their fam­i­lies.

There will also be art­work on dis­play, an in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tion and talks with the youth in­volved.

‘‘It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to share the en­joy­ment and en­thu­si­asm that their chil­dren bring to our ac­tiv­i­ties.

‘‘It also of­fers fam­i­lies of our par­tic­i­pants some qual­ity time to­gether, giv­ing them a chance to so­cialise, net­work and share their kids ex­pe­ri­ences and achieve­ments,’’ he says.

En­try to the ex­hi­bi­tion is free and all pro­ceeds from art­work sold will go to Recre­ate.
