Dance to give kids a playground

TOE-tapping fun is headed to the Orara Valley in a fortnight's time as Lions stage a fundraising bush dance at Upper Orara to grant the kids of Coffs Harbour a playground at the back of the PCYC.

A good ol' Aussie bush dance featuring band Tallowood will raise funds for the project on Saturday, August 29, at the Upper Orara Hall.

"We are holding a fundraising bush dance - proceeds going towards building a kids' playground at the back of the PCYC, which will have a total cost of about $50,000 and Lions only need to raise half as the council will fund the other half," Lions members Sylvia and Paul D'Olier said.

"We are passionate about including items of interactive play that will be enjoyed by sight-affected children, hearing impaired, active children and children in wheelchairs.

"Our goal is to have enough money in our bank account by the end of October to cover our portion of the costs, so that we can get this under way and hopefully finished by Christmas this year."

WHERE AND WHEN: Bush dance, Upper Orara Hall, Saturday, August 29, at 6.30pm. Cost is $30 a person, including a three-course dinner. BYO.

To purchase a table or tickets phone Sylvia on 0428 561 993 or Paul on 0428 561 950.
