THE iFLY EXPERIENCE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY—CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE
20th November 2019. United Disability Care sponsored the iFLY flight experience. In the led up to International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) we were celebrating the independence achieved by people living with disability. It was a very successful event with over 45 flyers, most who had never done anything so adventurous before. There were a few small children who were very brave and our eldest flyer in his 70’s. It truly is an all inclusive activity which we look to host again in 2020.
SURF, SAND AND SNAGS IN COFFS HARBOUR
On 3rd December 2019, we celebrated the International Day of People with Disability by having a social event, encouraging friendships with music, dancing, fun games, and all abilities surfing in Coffs Harbour, NSW.
We arranged for Solitary Islands Surf School to give Surf Lessons to those who would like to give it a try. We had some on their knees and some on their feet. Great effort by all. The Expert Surf Coaches help the beginners learn to surf.
Zumba with Pauline came down and everyone had a dance. Our team cooked the BBQ for the clients and their families and friends. We had over 50 people for lunch. Thanks for the support.
On 3rd December 2019 we celebrated International Day of People with Disability by having a fun social event with music by DJ Tympanic in Robina, QLD.
Our Disco Dance Party was great fun, we had around 50 people join us for a dance and some delicious afternoon tea. Everyone got on the dance floor to show us their moves – even the shy ones. We had glow sticks, balloons, singles use tattoos and it was all great fun. We enjoyed hosting it so much that we will do another one soon.
OPEN DAY AT ROBINA HEAD OFFICE
In July 2019 United Disability Care hosted an Open Day to showcase the new location of its head office to the people we support, their families and the community.
It was a fantastic opportunity for everyone to meet, come together and enjoy a visit.
We had a lovely morning tea, a few speeches and then a tour of the offices. Guests joining us were from Northern New South Wales to Northern Gold Coast.
