Our wonderful customers and Program & Camps Coordinator, Adele, have been working very hard since June to plan and create a beautiful array of handmade gifts for Midwest Community Living Association’s first ever Christmas on the Terrace held Thursday 7 December 2023.
Leading up to the event, our customers came together multiple times a week to participate in planned art and craft activities. This provided an opportunity for our customers to not only learn new skills and express their creativity, but it also gave them an opportunity to meet regularly with other people, work collaboratively as part of a team and develop social skills.
What a fabulous success Christmas on the Terrace was! Our stall, conveniently located out the front of our office, was so well received. We had such a fabulous selection of gifts, with something to suit everyone. The most rewarding part of our stall was watching our customers engaging with the community as they manned the stall and sold their creations with such pride and a sense of achievement. All proceeds from the stall will go directly back into group programs for our customers to attend and towards community initiatives to create ongoing opportunities for people with disability. A big thank you to everyone who supported our stall on the evening, your support means the world to us all!
