Social brekky with some flavour
BREAKFAST with a multicultural flavour is a new monthly event on the Coffs Coast.
The first was held on Saturday and attracted 10 local residents to break bread together at the Coffs Harbour Community Village.
The social meals, organised by Wilson Loyo and the Multicultural Breakfast Club, will be a regular monthly event at the Community Village and will be held from 10am to 11am on the first Saturday of each month.
Mr Loyo said everyone was welcome to attend the free breakfasts, which were designed to encourage people to enjoy a cup of coffee, exchange ideas and promote cultural awareness.
There was no upper or low age limit and people were welcome to bring their children.
He also plans to invite guests from service providers like Centrelink so breakfasters can ask them questions.
Northern Settlement Services was helping the Breakfast Club by providing a venue and some funding for catering, Mr Loyo said.
He is now looking for volunteers to help the Multicultural Breakfast Club with everything from catering to bookwork as well as by helping to expand its agenda into areas like helping members with literacy problems.
Wilson Loyo, whose own country of birth is Sudan, has been living and working in Coffs Harbour for almost three years.
His background is in community services.
Interested people are invited to contact Mr Loyo on his mobile, 0435 869 873.
