At a northern New South Wales charity surfing day for autistic children, the ice cream, lights and all-important PA system were kept operational throughout the day thanks to Compressed Air and Power Solutions Australia (CAPS Australia).
More than 200 children and young adults with autism and related developmental delays, along with their parents and carers, came together on Nobbys Beach, Newcastle, for the Hunter Connect and Surfers for Autism Beach Festival 2012. Expert instructors provided basic surfing tuition in a safe environment.
CAPS was pleased to support the event through participation of staff from its Tomago office and by donating a diesel generator to the organisers. Wayne Hampton, National Parts Interpreter with CAPS, co-ordinated the company’s activities in relation to the event. “Providing an opportunity for families and carers to put aside their worries for any period of time should be encouraged,” he said.
Hunter Connect provides a support service for families living with autism, asperger, ADHD and other neurological development disorders. Individuals suffering from autism and related development delays are highly receptive to the physical nature of the Beach Festival activities. Families and carers will also be kept occupied by a range of related games and events.
“We want families affected by Autism to experience the love and acceptance of Newcastle’s surfing and business communities through this extraordinary event,” said Sam Hays, President and co-founder of Hunter Connect. Donations arranged through local sponsors helped raise important funds for Hunter Connect, allowing it to organise future events and to assist in furthering support for families affected by autism.
