Able Day on the Bay
A team of people with deafblindness had a rare opportunity to hit the waters of Port Phillip Bay last month as part of our Annual Able Day On the Bay event.
This year’s event was held on Saturday 19 July at Beaumaris Yacht Club and saw more than 30 people Able Australia supports enjoy boat rides, joy rides in the array of vintage cars and a delicious Christmas in July lunch with all the festive trimmings.
Our special thanks to Community Sector Banking who generously supported the day, as well as Jan Flude and her team of volunteers who worked closely with the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron and Model T Ford Club to help make the day a spectacular success.
Christmas comes early at Able
There’s been an early taste of the festive season at Able Australia in recent weeks, with two very successful Christmas in July events being held in Tasmania and Queensland.
Our Queensland event was held in Jimboomba in 12 July and was a great night out for the people we support, staff and volunteers alike. With door prizes, music, dancing and of course a fabulous feast, it certainly felt like Christmas had come early.
Soon after, Santa made his way down to Tasmania for an early Christmas event on 19 July at the Launceston Golf Club. More than 60 people attended the night which involved great food, terrific entertainment and helped raise some valuable funds.
Our special thanks to Dawn Askin and Karen Maton who volunteered their time to bring the event together and help make it a special night out.
