Celebrating International Day of People with Disability

International Day of People with Disability is always a wonderful day at mecwacare’s Fisher Street Centre, and this year was no exception, with a special afternoon event celebrating clients and their achievements.

The event was held on a warm December afternoon with beautiful artwork created by Fisher Street clients and staff displayed in a photo gallery for guests to view. Attendees enjoyed a barbecue lunch cooked by client Sean and assisted by a volunteer.

Fisher Street Centre Manager Lawrence also brought some culinary flair to the event with a pizza oven brought from home that he used to produce delightful handmade pizzas for attendees.

There was also a raffle, with the proceeds going towards sponsoring program activities at Fisher Street for 2024. Prize winners took home festive gift hampers including a gingerbread house.

Guests were also treated to a special performance by Fisher Street clients, who excitedly sang popular eighties and nineties tunes for their audience, including a rendition of their favourite song, ‘We Are Australian’ by The Seekers.

The event was a huge hit, with everyone enjoying the food as well as mingling and socialising throughout the afternoon.
