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.
“Key Employment are helping me get my driving licence by providing free driving lessons to help me along the way.”
“I like Key Employment because it helps you with your job seeking and career. The trainers are very helpful with all of it. It is a lot better than school and I’m looking forward to getting my career sorted.”
“Key contact me or the boss regularly and make sure I don’t need anything to maintain my job.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“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.”
