C.ex Dragons

Paddles Up!

Sunday’s weather provided the perfect setting for the Titivators annual Dragon Boat Regatta, with so many teams from communities throughout the region travelling to the area to compete, the atmosphere on the Kalang River was simply electric.

Every year Urunga hosts this exciting event, which draws teams from all over the coast to compete, some of who even race in state competitions!

The C.ex Dragons proudly took part in the day’s activities, with a full boat and 120% determination the team managed to take a 1st and 2nd place throughout the day and finally finished with a 3rd place in the finals. Everyone on the day put in an amazing effort, the competition was fierce and provided our team with a tough challenge.

Thank you to the Titivators for organising such a wonderful event for the community and for donating your hours to provide training, to all those who volunteered their time on the day and to the Urunga community for supporting the event.

Well done to all the teams and great job to those who paddled for the C.ex Dragons!

Ride for Country Kids

John Rafferty, C.ex Group CEO recently participated in Royal Far West’s Ride for Country Kids for the second consecutive year. This year John, along with other C.ex Group team members Cameron Wendt, Rouan Lerm, Craig Madsen and Scott Nolan rode from Riverina major city, Wagga Wagga to Orange in central NSW – a gruelling 420km! The funds raised by the ride go towards ensuring country kids have access to the same healthcare as city kids. The C.ex Group team raised an incredible $36,371.00. Funds raised go directly to the work of Royal Far West caring for country children by providing essential medical services that are not accessible to many children in Australia. Royal Far West’s operating costs are covered by other channels, ensuring that all funds raised through the Ride for Country Kids goes directly to getting country kids the best possible healthcare.

Coffs Coast Carols

C.ex Group is proud to sponsor the 2016 Coffs Coast Carols, to be held at Brelsford Park from 6.30pm on Saturday 17 December. The Carols bring together the whole community to celebrate Christmas in a family friendly environment, in the heart of Coffs Harbour. The evening will include entertainment, food, fireworks and lots of fun for the kids including activities, rides and a visit from Santa! LifeHouse Church, Coffs Harbour City Council, the CBD Master Plan Committee and C.ex Group are proud to present this wonderful, all-ages community event!

Powering Up the Guides

Coffs Harbour Girl Guides is a community organisation providing educational, leadership and life skills programs to girls and young women. The Guides meet on a weekly basis and participate in many community events throughout the year such as ANZAC Day and Clean Up Australia Day. The Coffs Harbour Guide Hall recently required a number of repairs to qualify the building to meet statutory safety requirements. C.ex Group provided the Coffs Harbour Girl Guides with funding to assist in the unexpected repairs, including relocation of the electrical meter box. The repair work was carried out successfully on Wednesday 19 October with the result of the hall now meeting safety requirements and the recommencement of the Guides usual activities and meetings.
