This popular event is held annually in November, and we would like to thank organiser Nick Moretti for his fantastic support. Our thanks also to the sponsors of the event and to Don McMurray who attended on behalf of the association at the recent presentation where a donation of $13,500 was made from the 2016 festival.

Run by the Australian Government, NDIS information sessions are designed to help people with a disability, as well as their families and carers, learn about the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
