Ward 75 councillor Joan Woodman in partnership with Sports and Recreation and other role players hosted a Youth Day Event at the Woodlands Sports Field with the banner “I am a Winner”.

The event catered for 400 children aged 10 to 15 from the ward.

“We find ourselves in a time and era where everything has changed, we live in our own homes as prisoners. My passion and heart’s desire is to see our children that has given up on life and their future, being mentored in making them believe they are winners and not losers. This was the first of many more and at our next event we plan to concentrate on bringing back family values by getting our families involved,” says Woodman.

The local ratepayers’ associations, The Emmanuel Worship Centre, Arisen Women, combined ward 75 neighbourhood watches, activists, Starter Academy and; Recreation and Parks were all part of making the event a success. Woodman further thanked law enforcement, the City’s Fire Department, social development and marines who were present on the day to educate and showcase their expertise.
