Festival of flowers celebrated by people with a disability

Over 200 people with a disability had the chance to be the first to celebrate the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers on Friday September 17.

Kay Dee Promotions presented a free event for people with a disability at the Carnival including many Endeavour clients, including over 30 rides, sideshow alley and complimentary festival treats like ice cream, fairy floss and snow cones.

Kay Dee Promotions Director, Felicity Thomas believes that this is an opportunity to give back to the community.

"Schools and groups are registering to be part of this special day through Endeavour Foundation and we're opening the sideshow alley early to allow these young people to get the first taste of the Carnival,” she said.

Endeavour Foundation Industries Manager, Ross Faint is grateful for the generosity of organisations such as Kay Dee Promotions in supporting people with a disability.

"It was a great opportunity for people with a disability to enjoy themselves - it put a real smile on their dial,” said Ross.

Endeavour’s role is to help our supported employees and clients to experience things you and I take for granted, and what’s more normal than enjoying a fun day at the carnival.

"It was a great opportunity for Endeavour clients to meet new people from throughout the Toowoomba community.

”Thank you to Felicity and Kay Dee Promotions for an excellent day – your generosity was greatly appreciated by everyone.”

Endeavour Foundation provides accommodation, education and employment opportunities to over 3,400 people with a disability.
