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.

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.

C.ex Dragons

On Sunday 1 May, the C.ex Dragons competed in the Urunga Dragon Boat Regatta on the picturesque Kalang River.  The C.ex Dragons defended their title in the Community Category after an uncertain start, re-establishing their form to win the final race by an impressive five seconds. A huge thank you to the Titivators Dragon Boat Club who gave up their time to train the Dragons and also coordinated the Regatta to be such a great success.
