Around 120 residents from 40 care homes and day centres across the region tried their hand at various games and challenges at the eighth annual Go4Gold event in Bell’s Sports Centre in Perth. Eight Perth Kinnoull Rotarians were present for the event on Tuesday 11th June in the morning having spent many months training some of the teams. A variety of indoor games in an Olympic style kept the elderly teams very busy and occupied with their carers.

The participants took part in various physical challenges, including indoor curling, golf throwing target, fishing for ducks, hoopla, and a golf putting challenge. Some of the other activities on the day included a warm-up session led by Perth College UHI, a games challenge, and a tea dance and sing-song, with the Perth High School ceilidh band providing the music and singers.
