It’s always great to know when Coolum HeARTs have their celebration planned. Last Sunday, locals who love the arts left Coolum State School Hall feeling happier and healthier for being there.

Local treasures and Coolum HeARTS founders, Clive and Barb Holden worked with their president, Tony Mitchell and an amazing group of volunteers, performers and supporters to deliver an afternoon themed, ‘Sing Out for Mental Health’.

“It was a wonderful success,” Barb said.

“Coolum HeARTs raised over $2,000 at the door. There were so many beautiful people, lots of laughter and fantastic music. Hosted by the incredible Yvonne Costorphin, more than 150 adults present and 80 children sang, danced, acted and drummed sensationally making very much making it a community event,” she shared.

“We want to thank all those who attended and enjoyed the performances. The raffle will be drawn at a committee meeting next Friday and all winners will be notified by phone. To top it all off, our volunteers then provided a sumptuous afternoon tea which was delicious,” Barb added.

She said funds will enable Coolum HeARTs to continue providing art, singing, drumming and meditation for people who live with significant challenges in their lives. Barb made special mention of Kerryn Vincart from the Marcoola Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank.

“Kerryn joined us for the celebration on Sunday, and the ongoing support the Marcoola Community Bank branch provides is very important to us. Our Coolum community is indeed a community in the real sense of the word,” Barb concluded.

Coolum HeARTs is a not-for-profit organisation that offers access to the arts by people living with physical and intellectual disability, mental health issues, domestic violence, depression, effects of drug and alcohol abuse (family members also) and social isolation. 

They are an inclusive organisation that welcomes anybody who would like to participate. Coolum HeARTs can be contacted on 5446 3533 or at coolumhearts@gmail.com.
