Disability action at the Markets
Be prepared to be astounded when the Eumundi Markets hosts a showcase to support Disability Action Week.
Over 10 organisations are combining on Wednesday 8th September to promote the talents and abilities of people with disabilities. The showcase, which will include a range of activities that reflect society, will be held near the entrance of the markets.
Kelly Paton, Community Engagement Representative from STEPS said that the event is part of a state-wide celebration designed to encourage communities to become more welcoming and inclusive places for everyone.
"We have a range of disability service providers coming together at the Eumundi Markets -- for example respite, mental health services and employment -- and we're all looking to raise awareness of the skills and abilities of people with disabilities," said Kelly.
"It's about the whole community celebrating the achievements of people with disabilities and their carers."
Among the activities planned are wheelchair basketball and martial arts displays, entertainment, singers and dancers, as well as an arts and crafts display.
