Invitation to come on board We Care Day

ORGANISERS of the popular We Care Day event have announced its return for 2016.

We Care Day is a chance for the Coffs Coast community to come together to celebrate our diversity and who we are.

Now in its fourth year, the day will kick off with a wheelchair sports basketball competition hosted by paralympian Ryley Batt involving local dignitaries and sports people living with a disability.

Festival-goers will be entertained by local performers as well as a headline act from Australia's Got Talent, grand finalist Matt McLaren, who has been blind since birth.

Up-and-coming contemporary country trio Victoria Avenue will return to Coffs to perform on the day as well.

The ever popular ETC youth zone and arts hub will feature new activities and Wheelchair Sports NSW will host "come and try" sporting events.

The C.ex children's zone will feature a jumping castle, petting zoo, mechanical bull, face painting and surfboard rides. Food and market stalls will circle the site and clubs and groups are welcome to come along and promote their wares.

Local aged care, health and disability service providers are encouraged to join the day by booking a space in the information hub.

We Care Day will be held on October 8 from 9am-3pm at Brelsford Park, Coffs Harbour.

More information will soon be available at www.wecareday.com.au.
