Saturday the 7th of December saw the inaugural Glitz and Glamour ball held at the Slim Dusty Centre, Kempsey. In conjunction with the International Day for People with Disability, 150 plus people enjoyed the festivities put on largely by Key Employment’s Kempsey team.
Kempsey/Port Macquarie manager Lisa Reed opened proceedings speaking about how Key Employment are helping those in our community. Her passion shone through and was evident for all those in the room how much it meant to her running this event.
Highlights of the evening included a 3 song show by the extremely talented Belinda Mahony and some fancy guitar work by the talented Amos Morris. Daz Smith had the room in awe of his tenacity, fighting spirit and sheer determination after a life changing accident. Anyone here on the night were lucky to witness just fantastic acts.
Next year the event promises to be bigger and better, stay tuned for details.
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“Key Employment has changed my life by getting me a job and helping me start my career. They check on my progress regularly and are always there to offer support if I need it.”
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
