It’s not every day a Storm Trooper, R2D2 and Dora the Explorer come to meet with staff and visiting country families at the Manly based charity. So, on Thursday 26 October, Royal Far West was delighted to welcome these very special guests to their Centre for Country Kids.
Every year the KidzFix Foundation and entrants organise numerous fund raising events and activities across the eastern states which culminates in the annual off road driving adventure rally. The entrants taking part in the KidzFix Foundation Rally chose Royal Far West to be one of their beneficiaries. This year the teams travelled from Narooma to Yass via Bright – and what makes KidzFix such a special organisation of volunteers is the way participants actually get to see where their money goes and the impact it makes handing over a number of the foundations appeals on route.
Jacqueline Emery said “Thank you so much KidzFix for being such great supporters of Royal Far West. Thanks to the amazing efforts of the Kidzfix entrants this year, we will be able to reach more children living in rural and remote Australia where families really struggle to access the specialist health and wellbeing support that those of us living in city areas take for granted”.
David Ward Managing Director from KidzFix said ““The Kidzfix Foundation makes real measurable differences to rural and regional kid health and well-being no matter where they live in Australia”.
“Being able to support the Royal Far West in supporting rural and regional kids is such a special honour and connection for KidzFix to support as it connects rural and regional kids to the best of medical and educational programs available”
David goes on to say “This funding will enable more kids and their families to access Royal Far West’s Manly-based Child and Family Services and staff. On top of that being able to visit the beach at Manly an iconic location for anyone and so makes it even more special as some kids have never seen the ocean let alone city life”.
