Day at races to celebrate people with disabilities

A FAMILY fun day at Grafton racecourse this Sunday (November 24) will kick-off events to mark the achievements and contributions of people with disabilities.

Mayor Richie Williamson said the day at the races would kick-off a round of events to celebrate the Clarence Valley's International Day of People with Disability.

"The traditional International Day Cake will be cut and distributed among the crowd before the running of the 'Celebrating Abilities' horse race," Cr Williamson said.

"A free bus will run from Iluka to Grafton picking up those who have booked by Wednesday (November 20)."

To book a seat on the bus, phone Community Transport on 66453200.

"The family fun day will be followed up with a number of other events, including a sailing and picnic day at Harwood and film nights at Grafton and Yamba," Cr Williamson said.

"The full program of events is available on council's website."

International Day of People with Disability is a United Nations-sanctioned day aimed at increasing public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities and celebrating their achievements and contributions.
