I used to volunteer my services as a Photographer when I was in Malaysia but have not done so since I’ve had my kids. Hence it was a lovely experience for me to attend and photograph the 4th Annual Alice Family Fun Day ‘It’s a Knockout’ event held at Newcastle Rugby Club on 10th July 2016. This annual event which is organised by the Silverdale-based Alice Charity is a free family fun day where various Companies / Organisations support the charity by joining in as a team of 10. Each team pays a fee of £350 for their team building acitivities, there was also a children’s race for the young ones to be involved as well as craft stalls and a bouncy castle. Alice Charity is a local charity based in Newcastle Under Lyme helping families who are struggling on low incomes with the support and expertise to help make the changes needed to improve their lives.
The event was a success with lots of people participating in it, there were lots of team building activities with a fun element. The teams were split into two categories ie adult and children. There were also other activities such as face painting for the kids, bouncy castle as well as an ambulance on standby for emergency. The whole event which started at eleven in the morning went on untill four in the evening. Families just had a relaxing and fun day out all for a good cause.
I photographed over 100 photos during the event, but here are a few of my favourite candid or action shots. This first shot is of a girl who had her face painted on the day.

More candid shots… lots of facial expressions could be seen during the events such as joy, dissapointment, excitement, being nervous etc. It is really great to see so many people coming together supporting a local charity like Alice for a good cause.

More photos of kids activities, there was lots of bouncing, jumping and sliding in water on the day. We were lucky the weather held on for us and it did not rain during the event.
Some came well prepared for the day, just having a relaxing time and enjoying their day watching the programs
