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.

Dancing for a Cure

Stars of Coffs Coast Dance for Cancer, an annual gala fundraiser in support of Cancer Council NSW, was held at C.ex Coffs on Saturday 24 September 2016. Proudly sponsored by C.ex Group, the event now in it’s 7th year has raised over $600,000 to date. These funds have been used to reduce cancer incidences and to support people living with cancer in our local community, as well as funding world-class research, improving cancer outcomes for people globally.

The 2016 event alone raised an incredible $75,000 with C.ex Group representative Karen Hacking taking out the highest fundraiser award, raising an impressive $17,927 alone. Congratulations must also go to the Judges Choice Award winner, Brendan Graetz of North Coast Power and Water and the People’s Choice Award winner, David Bourke of MNC Community OOSH Services.

Together we will beat cancer.

The funds will be used by world-leading researches to help find cures for childhood diseases.

Sleeping Out for a Cause

On Wednesday 29 June the third annual C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out was held at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium. The 4 degree temperatures and morning mist were braved by sixty Coffs Coast residents who slept out in an effort to raise awareness and much needed funds for homelessness in our region.
The event fundraised an incredible $42,000.00 for charity, with the funds being evenly distributed between the Men’s Resource Centre, Homes for Heroes and Warrina Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Service.  For more information on the 2016 Sleep Out and to subscribe for future event information click here.
