Revesby Uniting Church

Paddle for Participation

All of us deserve an opportunity to participate.

To participate in learning at school.

To participate in employment.

To participate in leisure activities that mean something to us.

This Lent, let’s help make sure children and adults with disabilities in Sri Lanka get an opportunity to participate in their communities.

To help Revesby Uniting Church raise funds for UnitingWorld partners in Sri Lanka, Barry will be paddling from Tom Uglys Bridge in Sylvania to Fitzpatrick Park in Picnic Point on 23 March.

It’s a 20 km paddle which aims to support UnitingWorld partners in Sri Lanka to continue their work in:

- ensuring children with disabilities get early intervention, participate in mainstream schooling with the support they need, or can access specialist education and support services.

supporting adults with disabilities to access small business loans and training to allow them to survive and thrive into the future.

giving elders with disabilities the support and equipment they need to continue to contribute to their communities, including wheelchairs, glasses, the support of ‘barefoot counsellors’ etc.

Your tax deductible donation will help ensure that UnitingWorld partners in Sri Lanka can keep working towards participation for all.

Please donate today, and join the Revesby Uniting Church community to celebrate this inspiring project with a picnic lunch at the finish line: 11am Saturday 23 March at Fitzpatrick Park.

And if you have access to something that floats on water, feel free to join Barry for part or all of his paddle!
