Stay in touch with Orana Summer 2019
GFG Alliance’s kind donation turns into Big Smiles for all
Bre, an Orana client, was super excited to receive tickets kindly donated by GFG Alliance to attend the Whyalla Show on the 17th and 18th August 2019. The Whyalla Show is a large community event that runs all weekend, once a year. It is a place for the community to come together and see arts and crafts, try horse riding, go on rides and check out plenty of food and drink stalls. There are even fireworks!
Here Bre is accepting the tickets from Sean, the lovely staff member from GFG Alliance Australia. Sean organised the donation and went out of his way to drop them off to Bre himself. When Sean dropped the tickets off, Bre was ecstatic and said, “I am going to get a show bag! Thank you, thank you’, followed by a warm hug and plenty of happy photos. “Witnessing this was the highlight for me”, Sean said.
A total of eight tickets were donated by GFG Alliance, providing tickets to people with disability, client coaches and a family member to attend the Whyalla Show for the whole weekend. Orana and everyone who attended the Show would like to thank GFG Alliance for their kind donation. Many of the families were very excited to hear that GFG supported this event.
Another highlight for Holly, who is blind, was driving the dodgem cars whilst Sam used the accelerator. They had such a ball! You can check out the photos below. Thank you for the smiles and laughter, everyone had a fantastic, fun day!
