DISABILITY ACTION WEEK GOLF FUND-RAISER CAIRNS GOLF CLUB

DISABILITY ACTION WEEK GOLF DAY

The second Disability Week Golf Day, co–organised in partnership with Disability Services Queensland (DSQ), FNQ Volunteers Inc, My Pathways and STEPS was held on Thursday afternoon, 14 September at the Cairns Golf Club. The purpose of the event was to:

  • celebrate Disability Action Week and to raise awareness about people with disabilities
  • provide an opportunity for people with a disability to play golf, participate in a putting competition or hit some golf balls on the driving range
  • provide an opportunity for business and service providers to network
  • Raise some money to provide a golf clinic for people with disabilities

9 disabled people participated in the event, but everyone  thoroughly enjoyed the day’s programme and of course the great prizes donated by sponsors.

There was a BBQ lunch before the game which was attended diligently by the STEPS volunteers, who also ran errands keeping themselves busy. Their efforts in volunteering did not go unrewarded — the young multicultural volunteers won a swag of prizes.

The Golf Clinics will continue into the future and the organisers look forward to seeing everyone at the next event in 2018.
