Pineapples, dragons, leprechauns and chickens walked, bumped and jumped at a fun sports day organised by Beds Garden Carers at Russell Park.
The teams of Purple Pineapples, Pink Dragons, Green Leprechauns and Yellow Chickens all threw themselves into a variety of events which included an egg and spoon race, a three-legged race, belly bumping and even welly throwing.
Beds Garden Carers is a Bedford-based charity that is dedicated to providing work experience and education for adults with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.
Cardington-based Capita SIMS volunteered their services during its fun sports day.
Sharon Hart, chief officer at Beds Garden Carers, said: “Alison Paris and her team of lovely ladies from Capita ran our refreshments tent which proved rather popular on what turned out to be a glorious summer day.
“The Purple Pineapples were victorious at the end of a packed schedule of fun events. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
Jacquie Richards, internal communications executive at Capita SIMS, added: “The sound of laughter could be heard for miles. All the carers and clients that we met had boundless energy and such infectious enthusiasm. It was a fantastic experience.”
