We recently took part in the 2017 Mental Health & Wellbeing Fair on Saturday 14th October in Mackay. It was a fantastic event and our site included a creative wall (where kids could come and draw on), hula hoops, velcro target game, 'guess the lollipop' competition and paper crane making classes – all great activities that the kids got involved in!
There was a competition for the best site as decided and voted upon by the general public and... WE WON! This gives us a free site at the 2018 fair! A big thank you to all that voted for us.
The theme for this years fair was 'Lift the lid on Mental illness' with all sites creating their own hats. We may be a little biased but ours were definitely the most fun & creative hats - they really stood out!
The day was a great success, loads of fun for all the community and we thoroughly enjoyed talking to people about Excelcare and learning what other organisations offer.
We'll see you at the 2018 Mental Health & Wellbeing Fair!
