The 2015 C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out was held on June 10 at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium. Forty five participants braved the winter weather and slept out in a bid to raise awareness and funds for homelessness in the Coffs Coast Region. The event raised an incredible $25,229.00 for three Coffs Harbour charities; Bridging the Gap – Men’s Resource Centre, Warrina Women & Children’s Refuge and the Jetty Bunker Youth Services Inc.
The Coffs Harbour Show was an action packed two days, celebrated over the weekend of the 16-17 May. The Crew were on hand volunteering throughout the weekend assisting with the grand parade. Our Operations Manager, Jeff Cox took out the annual mower race title against Andrew Fraser MP with an impressive time of 55 seconds. We are a proud major sponsor of the Coffs Harbour Show Society, sponsoring the C.ex Coffs Sky Show, a fantastic family fireworks display.
More than 105,000 Australians are homeless on any given night, including thousands of families.
The first ever C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out held last year raised an impressive $18,000 for the Warrina Women and Children’s Refuge and the Mens Resource Centre. These two local charities are working to increase awareness and improve the condition of homelessness in our community.
The Sleep Out is on again this year and the C.ex Community Crew want it to be bigger and better, which is why it will be held at the C.ex Coffs International stadium.
Million Paws Walk
Fast approaching is the annual Million Paws Walk. On Sunday 17 May the C.ex Community Crew will be cooking up a storm for the event. The walk begins at 10am from Park Beach Reserve, with all proceeds made on the day going directly to the Coffs Harbour RSPCA.
This is the 22nd year of the event and is the most important event on the canine calendar.
On the day, you and your four-legged friend will be treated to entertainment, displays, stalls, giveaways and a host of other activities. Million Paws Walk is a great day out for the whole family while raising funds for animals in need.
Whatever the age, size, breed or ability – all dogs are welcome for a fantastic doggy day out! No four-legged friend? Not to worry, even those without pooches are welcome to join in the fun. Walk to save animal cruelty.
The bcu Coffs Tri is just around the corner set to be held the weekend of 7th-8th March.
Employees of the C.ex Group began the New Year in training mode and have multiple C.ex teams registered in the event. The C.ex Group are a proud major sponsor of the bcu Coffs TRI and each year the C.ex Community Crew volunteer to lend a helping hand on the day. Director of the event, Mick Maley said “Events such as the bcu Coffs Tri could not run without the support from our local community. We are delighted to have the C.ex Group on board again as a major sponsor. Without their generous financial support and help from their dedicated volunteers, the event would not be the success that it is.”
Registrations for the event will be held at C.ex Coffs from 5pm-7pm on Friday 6th March.
What a great way to start the New Year! The C.ex Community Crew assisted the Mid North Coast Disabled Surfers Association at Coffs Jetty Beach. Nice work team.
