Sunflower Sunday draws bloomin’ big crowd

On Sunday 9 April more than 1500 people descended on Point Walter Recreation Centre to enjoy a day of free entertainment and activities for all abilities as part of our annual family fun day, Sunflower Sunday. 

The wheelchair-accessible flying fox, cuddly animal farm, inflatable climbing wall, virtual reality experience and face painting proved particularly popular with the crowd. Guests were also treated to musical performances by Catch Music and had the chance to meet Therapy Focus mascot, Sunny the Sunflower.

Therapy Focus’ partner organisations, Rise, Identitywa, Interchange, Intelife and Technology Assisting Disability WA (TADWA) also hosted inclusive and accessible activities and provided guests with information about services available to people with disabilities.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of Lotterywest, the City of Melville and a Youth Week Grant from the Department of Local Government and Communities.

A special thank you also goes to Therapy Focus staff and volunteers who assisted at the event, and also to the team at the Point Walter Recreation Centre whose support was greatly appreciated.

Therapy Focus would also like to thank everyone who took the time to provide feedback about the event to help plan for future years.
