A range of stall holders were featured at a previous Options Day event.

Local community groups are being encouraged to register a stall for the upcoming Options Day which will be held at the Bundaberg PCYC.

Marking 11 years of the event in 2022, Options Day is organised and hosted by Bundaberg All Abilities Alliance in partnership wit the Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre.

With Disability Action Week held from 26 November until 2 December, Options Day will take place on Tuesday, 29 November at the PCYC.

Steps Bundaberg Business Development Officer Gayle Reynolds said the event was a fantastic way to get the community together and create great outcomes.

“This event is local and community driven, it invites the community to discover the rapidly emerging opportunities in the local disability sector,” Gayle said.

“This event offers inclusive, hands-on and engaging activities for the whole community and features art workshops, singing and dancing, guest speakers, cooking demonstrations information stalls and much more.

“This year people with a disability are encouraged to host their own stall to showcase their product, service or what they are currently working on and wanting to share.”

Guest speakers include people from NDIS, NIDA and BushKids to answer questions and talk about the disability sector in Bundaberg.

A sign language interpreter will be onsite.

Options Day will be open to all schools and members of the public.

Local businesses are encouraged to attend to meet with the community, connect with people and learn about the opportunities this thriving region and sector has to offer.

The All Abilities Alliance is a collaborative group of businesses, services, and members of the disability community.

Stallholders may register a site here.

Numbers are limited and registrations close soon.
