Learning Ladders Family Fun Day Carnival

Carnival attracts families, raises funds for LLS centre

Feb 8th, 2010
LOCAL band performances, funfair games, magic shows, colouring contests, bouncers, a flying fox set-up, face painting, henna tattoos, a bike show and great food from participating outlets such as Pizza Hut, KFC, Rasamas, Serikandi, RBC Express and Dairy Queen were just some of the enjoyable activities available to visitors during the Family Fun Day Carnival held for the Learning Ladders Society (LLS) yesterday.
Hundreds of children and adults turned up at the VIP car park section of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium to enjoy themselves for a good cause.

“We have so many volunteer groups lending their hand towards our charity event such as the Katak Ijau Fan Club, Rugby Knights, members of UNISSA, Bersatu Bikers Club to name a few, and for that we are very thankful,” said the Director/Vice President of LLS, Puan Linda.

“We really hope this event will help us raise funds for the centre because funding is one of our most important concerns at the moment.

“We wish to cater to more children, especially those who are on our waiting list and we need funding for that,” she continued.

Speaking with the Bulletin, Ak Kamal Ghadafi expressed his pleasure, highlighting the good food, great games and incredible local band performances.

LLS, since its launch in May 2008, has been working around the aim of increasing awareness for and helping children with neurological disorders.

Everyone was working very hard to make sure everything went smoothly. Our Director and even our President were helping their staff and volunteers to make sure everything was ready for the next day. Volunteers had to stay up late just to test out their games and helped Learning Ladders. Learning Ladders Staff had to work overtime to organize the gifts for the winners of the games.
