Apart from food, en­try and rides will be free of charge be­cause of do­na­tions and spon­sor­ship from lo­cal busi­nesses, schools and sup­port­ers.

The car­ni­val will be held at To­tara Springs on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 22 from 3pm to 6pm.

Or­gan­iser Jeanette How­den said the car­ni­val was a great way for campers to thank the com­mu­nity and for the com­mu­nity to un­der­stand what the camp was about.

‘‘We hope that peo­ple will have a fun af­ter­noon with us and recog­nise that we are all peo­ple, it’s just that some of us are wired dif­fer­ently,’’ she said.

Lend­ing a hand: Ngaio Greeves, 14, will be help­ing out at a camp for the dis­abled this week­end.
