What a great turnout in Batemans Bay for our first Walk to d’Feet MND. A big thank you to our local co-ordinator Victoria Haberley who was motivated to organise this Walk by her friend Sharon Penman. A beautiful sunny morning greeted the walkers and, after a bit of a warm up exercise to some great background music, they headed off towards Batemans Bay. Thank you to everyone who supported this great new Walk and we look forward to catching up next year.

If you have ever fancied yourself in a Bollywood film, this is the event not to be missed. Navratri Garba 2017 is on Saturday 23 September at Bernie Mullane Complex, Kellyville. Navratri Garba is an Indian traditional form of dance performed by millions of Indians around the world during the Navratri festival, signifying the Cosmic Energy in the form of Mother Goddess’s win of good over evil. People from all ethnicities enjoy the live folk dance and music. This is an alcohol free family day with lots of fantastic dancing and music. Tickets are only $10 per head with children under 5 free. Money raised from this event supports the work of MND NSW. More info here.
