Mar­kets help raise aware­ness

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

WAMINDA hosted their mar­kets on Mon­day af­ter­noon, with a wide va­ri­ety of stalls set up for peo­ple to wan­der be­tween.

The mar­kets were de­signed to co­in­cide with Dis­abil­ity Ac­tion Week and to cre­ate aware­ness in the com­mu­nity.

Waminda Ser­vices busi­ness man­ager Paige Cooper said there was plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties to keep the whole fam­ily oc­cu­pied.

“We had quite a few stalls, we had jew­ellery, soap, food and drink, the Mr Whippy van, the Donut Man, a postie party – which is like a fash­ion pa­rade, face paint­ing and a jump­ing cas­tle,” Miss Cooper said.

Plenty of peo­ple from around town came to sup­port the event and ac­knowl­edge the good work the lo­cal dis­abil­ity sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tion does.

“We were very happy with how it went, we raised good aware­ness for Dis­abil­ity Ac­tion Week,” Miss Cooper said.
