We were pleased to support Therapy Focus in celebrating the start of Disability Awareness Week on Monday, 1 December, with a movie night under the stars at McDonalds Community Cinemas, Burswood.

As they arrived, kids big and small found they were able to join the circus without leaving home, with CirQuest helping movie-goers juggle devil sticks, toss diabolo and ride unicycles.

There were plenty of swiveling hips with people decorating their very own hula hoops while Sunny the Sunflower warmed up the crowd and sausages sizzled on the barbie.

That was all before the movie had even started. Once the stars came out and the projectors rolled, we watched the quirky underground Boxtrolls wrestle town villain, Archibald Snatcher, with plenty of laughs along the way.

Thank you to those who made donations which will help support WA children and young people with disabilities, and to the McDonalds Community Cinemas volunteers.

Also helping to make the night possible, was a Count Me In grant received by Therapy Focus from the Disability Service’s Commission. Grants were for inclusive events held during Disability Awareness Week promoting the Count Me In vision of ‘All people live in welcoming communities that facilitate citizenship, friendship, mutual support and a fair go for everyone.’

Disability Awareness Week runs in WA each year to coincide with International Day of People with Disability on 3 December.
