FEATURED IN THE MEDIA
THE iFLY EXPERIENCE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY
United Disability Care sponsored over 45 flyers with disability to experience indoor skydiving as it is an all abilities activity. Channel 7 News joined us at iFLY to do a story for the 6 pm news.
The flyers had an amazing experience, it was truly heart-warming day. The stories of excitement and achievement from the flights are the reason why we support people living with disability to love their lives and live their dreams.
“While I consider it a privilege to do what I do, I love that I am in a position that I can take a moment to give back in some way and inspire people to do something that makes them love life” – Sylvia Capps CEO.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the day possible and to the amazing iFLY staff. Indoor Skydiving at iFLY is safe, easy to do and accessible for all abilities. The huge vertical wind tunnel simulates the feeling of jumping out of a plane and free-falling for 50 seconds. The iFLY staff supported the flyers to feel safe and supported.

DRAMA GROUP PRODUCTION ONLINE NEWSPAPER
Time to Raise The Dead in Brunswick
Have you ever wondered what would happen to the Addams Family if they headed to the Byron Shire? Well now you have a chance to find out. Taking to the stage in Brunswick Heads for their final performance next Wednesday, the mixed ability Arcadia Plus Drama Group will be exploring the influence of the Rainbow Region on the strange world of the of Addams Family in their show Raise The Dead.
It involves fairies, magicians and some unexpected rock stars followed by a ‘whole lot of craziness’ said Rohin Knight from Byron Bay Care who has worked with the group since 2011.
The drama group has been run by local drama and dance teacher Brian Dale, who also runs the Bright Lights Performance School in Byron Bay, for the last six years.
‘Brian is great with the clients at picking out hidden talents and bringing the best out of everyone. He is really able to recognise their strengths,’ said Rohin.
The drama group brings people together from around the shire from a range of services who wouldn’t otherwise get opportunity to interact.
‘It’s a real melting pot but the biggest thing is it is a whole heap of fun. Workers get to let loose, have fun and help people get into their role and have a ball,’ he said with a laugh.
So get along to catch Raise The Dead next Wednesday July 31 at 11.30am at the Red Cross Hall in Brunswick Heads for a great laugh. It is a gold coin donation at the door.
