Forbes celebrates Day for People with Disability

Forbes Olympic Pool was awash with fun and games on Tuesday as Forbes celebrated the International Day for People with Disability (IDPwD).

Forbes Shire Council and Currajong Disability Services teamed up with Aruma and other NDIS provider to celebrate the annual day with a series of fun activities.

It is the second time that these groups have come together to host this key event.

Dane Millerd from Currajong Disability Services said it was a fantastic day and was bigger and better than last year.

"It was a great day to celebrate what is a big day on the disability calendar."

Mr Millerd said the day was great in that it allows people to recognise people with disabilities for what they are and can do, rather than what they can't.

Ruth Cole from Aruma said even though the water was quite cold in the pool, everyone enjoyed the day and the range of activities on offer.

Ms Cole said they would like to thank Forbes Shire Council for helping to organise the events at the Olympic Pool.

Tim Wheeler from Currajong Disability Service said it was a great event to take part in that's only gotten better and better.

For De-Arne Callagham and Cherie Lovett, the day was an excellent day out and allowed many diferent groups to come together and have fun.

Mr Millerd said he would like to thank the Forbes Shire Council, particularly Sarah and Kimberly, for all of their work on the day.
