THE thrill of the flying fox proved irresistible to 82-year-old Shirley Bolim, of Hastings, during Seniors Week activities at Camp Manyung, Mt Eliza, on Friday.
HER bravery was said to have inspired other participants to take part in a range of outdoor adventure activities.
Shire team leader, transport, Dial-a-Bus service, Janine Tresize, said those who attended “had a terrific day. Another lady, who is 94, said Shirley was courageous”.
The camp in Sunnyside Rd is run by the YMCA. Seniors took the opportunity to learn about clubs and social groups, such as University of the Third Age and Impact Volunteering or, like, Ms Bolim, to do something they’ve never attempted before.
