At the beginning of July staff dressed themselves up as Pokemon characters and hid around the neighbouring village in a real life Pokemon hunt! It was the amazing idea of one of our Deputy Care Managers, who knew how much our young people love the game and wanted to bring it to life for them. Staff were immediately enthusiastic about the whole idea and got to work making and buying costumes, showing true commitment to the plan.
Some of the Pokemon ‘hid’ in very public places and caused amusement to passers-by, with lots of car horns being sounded! The young people loved searching for the characters and, once they had found a real-life Pokemon, they got to throw a Pokeball to catch them and collect a puzzle piece. After collecting all nine pieces they were awarded a prize. Not only was this a fantastic day filled with hilarity from all involved (any many that weren’t), but the young people were able to develop their map reading skills too. We are bound to see this event happening again in the future!
