NAIDOC FAMILY FUN DAY AT COFFS SHOWGROUND

A NAIDOC week Family Day celebration in Coffs Harbour had it all.

Organised by local indigenous health workers, the event attracted hundreds of people to the showground, where a mixture of education and entertainment was provided.

Richard Widders from Aboriginal Health Services said, “It’s an opportunity for service providers to come in set up information booths, we then have the aboriginal community come in as part of NAIDOC Week activities to meet and greet people.”

Deadly Dan the Smoke Free Man was a hit with the crowd, leading a group of men and women in a vigorous aerobics work-out.
