Action Week in Italy got off to a fun start with a series of events for the younger children. UISP Sporty, the children’s sector of FARE partner, UISP, organised a series of events in Rome on 10th October followed by Lecce on 16 October, with Sicily soon to follow on 23 October.
Central to the fun-packed days were games of football, volleyball and basketball; all in the town squares using inflatable sports equipment. Staff distributed stickers and other freebies. Popular with children was a drawing and slogan contest where the best entries will appear in next month’s Sporty Magazine which is distributed to over 4,000 children.
