For people with a disability, an independent holiday can often be unaffordable. The cost of a support worker to accompany a person, 24/7, plus the cost of flights and accommodation, makes holidays financially inaccessible to many people.
annecto supported a group of people to experience a trip of firsts in 2016, and it was so successful it motivated others to save for their first independent holiday.
You’re invited to join us for a fun ‘Trip Of A Lifetime’ Trivia Night to raise funds for support workers to accompany a group of people who have saved for their first independent holiday.
“We had our first fully supported trip to the Gold Coast last year when 12 people from annecto David House experienced their first independent holiday,” explains Jackie Ross, annecto’s Western Coordinator of Learning and Lifestyle. “This year, others have been motivated to work hard and save their money for a trip of their own, but to fully support people on these trips, we’re seeking to raise funds for the volunteer staff who attend and make sure everyone has a good time,” explains Jackie.
Join in the fun, invite your friends, check out the silent auction, and bag yourself some goodies to support people to have a trip of a lifetime.
