bcu Coffs Tri

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.

COMMUNITY CREW SLEEP OUT

Register Now: http://www.cex.com.au/community/c-ex-community-crew-sleep/

C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out

As Homelessness is often a problem overlooked and misunderstood by the wider community, the first ever C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out is being held at C.ex Coffs.

When : Thursday June 26th 2014.

Time: 6pm – 8am

Details

The C.ex Community Crew will endeavour to provide participants with an example of what it is like to sleep in a temporary shelter for the night. Participants will bring a blanket and sleeping mat to the club and the club will provide a meal consisting of soup, bread roll and a hot drink – replica of what one would get in a shelter. Also provided will be a light breakfast in the morning.

Why:

The C.ex Coffs was involved with Homeless Persons Week at the beginning of August 2013 and was made aware that Coffs Harbour has no temporary shelter beds. On finding this out the idea evolved for the C.ex Community Engagement Program to host a Community Sleep Out. The aim is to raise awareness of Secondary Homelessness in the Coffs Coast area. The event also provides an avenue for community organisations to fundraise to provide better services within our LGA.

Everyone at the C.ex Coffs is privileged enough to end the day by going home and sleeping in a nice warm bed. For a large part of our nation’s population though, this is not the case. Every night there are 105,000 people in Australia who don’t have a safe place to call home. It could be friends and colleagues or people in your community. Often, through no fault of their own, families are facing crisis situations that leave them mentally, physically and financially at risk. Without support, these situations can quickly spiral out of control. Families are losing grip on secure housing and face the very real prospect of sleeping out in the cold.
