A generous donation by Parkes Services Club brought a lot of joy to Currajong Disability Services (CDS) on Monday.
General manager Mike Phillips donated $5,000 to CDS to cover the cost of transporting more than 30 adults living with a disability to attend a disability bowling league in Orange.
The money will cover the cost of hiring a coach to transport the bowlers to Orange and back seven times a year.
“Currajong Disability are overwhelmed with the generosity of the Parkes Services Club and our local community,” said Indigo Kriedeman, CDS Team Leader. “Without this ongoing support we could not make as many opportunities available to our participants. We cannot thank the Parkes Services Club enough for their continued support.”
CDS have been participating in the disability bowling league for 25 years. Chang-es to funding with the roll out of the NDIS meant that CDS were unable to continue to cover the transport costs.
This meant the CDS participants would have missed out on an activity that they love, give them an opportunity to play a sport and make friends with people from other towns and most of all to have fun.
Luckily the Parkes Services Club stepped up to help cover the costs and ensure the CDS participants could continue this popular and important activity.
