A helping hand

COUNCIL workers, a triathlete and a Christmas lights display have contributed to supporting children overcome learning difficulties and disabilities in their development. Coffs Harbour Early Intervention Program had a good start to the year’s fundraising, thanks to private fundraising efforts.

Bree Kleidon overcame significant physical difficulties to complete her first triathlon and raised $1100. Greg Chandler’s spectacular Christmas lights display collected almost $500 and Coffs Harbour City Council’s employees chose the charity to receive $5000 of income generated by the council working on external projects.

Fundraising presents quite a challenge for the volunteer management committee, who are mostly parents with children with additional needs. They aim to raise around $25,000 this year, to continue to provide the same level of service to children and families. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
