Festive Rush Hour Xmas breakfast
23 December 2018
The end of the year Christmas breakfast hosted by SouthSeas Healthcare, held recently at the Otara Pool and Leisure Centre, acknowledged a fantastic end to the Rush Hour community programme 2018.
SouthSeas have been providing a sports platform twice weekly at 6.00am where early birds can pop in and work up a sweat before their work or school day starts.
“This was a special Christmas treat where we provided a hearty breakfast for community people who turned up at 6.00 o’clock in the morning to play fun sports in the gym,” says Shaun Tautali SouthSeas Public Health Team Leader.
“The Rush Hour community programme was initiated almost 10 years ago by the Otara Blue Light team, which is made up of local police and community volunteers. Now sponsored by SouthSeas Healthcare, the free programme has grown providing fun and interactive activities for all ages.”
Shaun says the Rush Hour is a concept where the local community can come together to enjoy fun sports and get a good workout before their rush starts for the day.
“The most special thing about the Christmas breakfast is to thank the people who work with us.”
“This is a meaningful Christmas catch up for SouthSeas and we were determined to do something that makes a difference and share what we can do,” says Shaun.
Given the popularity of the Rush Hour programme with the community, SouthSeas Healthcare is willing to roll over the programme in 2019.
