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 think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
