Bluelight keeps kids busy hav­ing fun

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Kids en­joyed the Taupo AC baths on a trip or­gan­ised by Toko­roa Bluelight.

Toko­roa Bluelight is a non- profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that works hand in hand with the New Zealand Po­lice and of­fers many dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties, pro­grammes, events, camps and day trips for the chil­dren and youth in our com­mu­nity.

Each ac­tiv­ity that Bluelight runs is free from drugs, al­co­hol and vi­o­lence.

Some of the ac­tiv­i­ties they pro­vide are Take a kid to footy, Rain­bow’s End fun day, ju­nior touch, school hol­i­day camps, pool par­ties, day trips, pro­grammes in schools – this is just to name a few.

Toko­roa Bluelight has many vol­un­teers who help with each event.

Hav­ing the po­lice on board helps build bet­ter re­la­tion­ships be­tween the young peo­ple, the com­mu­nity and the po­lice.

The next event Bluelight is run­ning is a week- long camp at Camp Waitawheta in the Waihi Gorge from April 16 to 20.

CLIMB­ING HIGH: Bluelight took chil­dren to Taupo ear­lier this year where they were chal­lenged to climb high.

TAUPO DAY OUT: The pool party held ear­lier this month was a great suc­cess with more than 70 chil­dren at­tend­ing the event, which also boasted a pro­fes­sional DJ.
