Cara Sunday Picnic
Cara Sunday Picnic 2013
The end of summer is not all bad news for Cara clients, family members and staff, as it means the Cara Sunday Picnic is around the corner!
The Cara Sunday Picnic, hosted this year on 24 March, is an annual event hosted by Cara (Community Accommodation & Respite Agency) as a gesture of appreciation and goodwill for the people they support. Cara’s clients include adults and children living with multiple and significant disability who are supported through permanent or transitional accommodation, or respite options such as Camps for Kids, weekend getaways, or weekend respite stay overs.
“We support over 500 people living with disability across the state, from as far away as Port Lincoln,” says Cara chief executive, Denice Wharldall. “This is the only opportunity where everyone, including family members and support staff, can get together to share experiences and enjoy each other’s company.”
The event, sponsored by Edmen Staffing Solutions, provides a hearty BBQ lunch, drinks, desserts, an International Food Kitchen, accompanied by a wide range of stage and roving entertainment. This includes live music, facepainters, animal encounters, giant puppets, market stalls, and even a visit from the Easter bunny for the children.
