Find love on Valentine’s Day with IDSS speed dating

IDSS speed dating
IDSS speed dating will be held at Integrated Disability Support Services hub, 42 Bourbong Street, Bundaberg from 6 pm to 8 pm on 14 February.

If you are looking for love this Valentine’s Day Integrated Disability Support Services is hosting its first speed dating event in the Bundaberg Region.

The fun-filled evening will be open to all residents that identify as having a disability and their support person.

Integrated Disability Support Services’ Jamie McGraw said he was excited to bring the IDSS speed dating event to Bundaberg after the popularity of last year’s event at the Sunshine Coast.

“We held the first speed dating event at the Sunshine Coast last year and it was really successful – there is actually a couple together still from the night,” he said.

“There will be conversation cards to help spark the conversation and to help those who may get tongue tied.

“These include questions such as: what’s your favourite hobby? What’s your favourite kind of music? Just to help keep the conversations flowing.

“No pressure at all, it’s all about getting out there, having fun and meeting new people.”

The matchmaking process has the purpose of encouraging eligible singles to meet a number of new potential partners in a very short period of time.

Jamie said interest from community members for IDSS speed dating was slowly starting to build and by Valentine’s Day he hoped to have a full house of participants looking for companionship.

“So far we have six registered participants, which includes five gentlemen and one lady, so we are definitely keen to have more people RSVP,” he said.

He said it would be a simple and comfortable evening which would give people a chance to mingle, with games and finger food supplied.

“There’s no pressure at all – we’ve got a heap of games to jazz it up a bit,” Jamie said.

“It’s all about meeting new people.”

IDSS speed dating will be held at Integrated Disability Support Services hub, 42 Bourbong Street, Bundaberg from 6 pm to 8 pm on 14 February.

The event is free for IDSS clients, and $10 for non-clients.

A bus will run from Childers for IDSS clients.
