Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ABOUT 400 peo­ple at­tended the mind, body and spirit expo at the Co­ral Sea Re­sort over two days on the week­end.

The event was or­gan­ised by Kerry Aspland and Lisa Ste­wart who were very pleased with the suc­cess and have con­firmed it will be­come an an­nual event.

Ms Aspland said ex­hibitors trav­elled from as far away as Sydney.

They pro­vided psy­chic read­ings, crys­tal heal­ing, mas­sages, aura pho­tog­ra­phy and acupunc­ture.

“It was great to see so many peo­ple try some things they have never tried be­fore, like yoga,” Ms Aspland said. “It was great to be able to pro­vide these op­por­tu­ni­ties to the pub­lic of Air­lie Beach.”

Ms Aspland said she was sur­prised by the amount of young peo­ple who at­tended the event.

“There is a lot of curiosity about these types of things,” she said.

Ms Aspland said the funds raised had not been fi­nalised but that gen­er­ous do­na­tions would be made to Eco­barge Clean Seas and Fauna Res­cue.

“It was a great com­mu­nity ef­fort to raise funds for these great char­i­ties,” she said.

Ms Aspland thanks every­one who sup­ported the event.
