We Care Week

14.10.2013

Community Care Options inaugural We Care Week 14-19 October was enough to make local residents feel that this is the best place on earth to live.

The Real People Real Choices Real Solutions conference at Opal Cove 16-18 October attracted over 100 aged care and disability services representative each day to hear from leading industry experts and be entertained by people such as MC Paul McDermott and Clown Dr and humour-manitarian Jean Paul Bell. The fundraising dinner with Ray Martin for Connor Maclean saw over 130 locals come out in force to help raise money for his much needed trip to the USA for medical treatment while being captivated by award winning journalist Ray Martin’s speech on the night.

And if that wasn’t enough, We Care Day at the Jetty foreshore on Saturday 19th proved to be a massive success with over 3,000 people attending  throughout the day to enjoy the food & market stalls, live music, petting zoo, kids rides and entertainment as well as the chance to see local groups entertain on the community stage.

General Manager Debra Ryan from the organiser of the events, Community Care Options said “The purpose of everything we have done in We Care Week is to connect people within our community to others in the community. We no longer live in a society where extended family is necessarily close by to support one another. We need to recognise that some people need to access support to enable them to remain living at home, living a fulfilled and enjoyable life. Knowing where to find that support is vital so events such as We Care Day are not only a heap of fun but an important source of information.”

Everyone involved with We Care Week would like to send out a huge thank you to the Coffs Coast community for supporting these initiative. Remember it only takes a little ‘u’ to create a community! We look forward to seeing you at We Care Day again next year!

Coming soon – a photo gallery from the day.
