THE weather was wild but Coffs Harbour showed it was a city with heart, with a strong turnout to Saturday's We Care Day at the Jetty.

Paula Dowd from Community Care Options said the attendance was particularly good given the gusty winds.

"We estimate around 2500 people came down to check out the program and take part in what was on offer," Paula said.

"We welcomed people of all abilities and from all walks of life and cultures. It really was a great day and all the exhibitors and stallholders I spoke to were very positive about the event."

Paula said the cultural hub manned by Mark Flanders and the Wheelchair Sports NSW come-and-try zone proved popular.

"The support we got on Saturday despite the conditions gives us confidence we can make We Care Day into a major event for the Coffs Coast community," she said.
