Pathfinders’ Community Filled Weekend in Armidale

Community involvement and support along with interagency collaboration is an important part of the Pathfinders culture. We enjoy all opportunities to get to know and work alongside our partners!

It was a very busy weekend for Pathfinders with our not-for-profit being represented at two local community events. Friday night saw us up against some really stiff competition at the Armidale Business Chamber Awards night. While we didn’t take out first prize, we were honoured to come second to our community partners, HealthWISE. HealthWISE do an amazing job in the local community supporting the vulnerable and at-risk, ensuring they have appropriate access to the supports and healthcare they need. Well done, HealthWISE!

Saturday night saw us putting on our collective thinking caps with our partners from FaCS and HealthWISE at the Challenge Children’s Services Trivia night. This night was to help raise funds to send Challenge foster children to Disneyland later in the year. It was wonderful to see our agencies sharing a table. While good fun was had by all, unfortunately, even a little bit of help from Professor Google couldn’t get us into first place!

Thank you to all those involved, and we look forward to the next event!
