At Bamara, we are all about community spirit and working in collaboration, so our team at DHUB took the initiative into their own hands to host the Wellington Community Fun Day, an unforgettable day for everyone who joined us on the day.  

With the local community experiencing some challenging and unfortunate times in recent weeks, we put the call out to various organisations across Dubbo and Wellington with the idea of holding a day of reflection, togetherness and positive vibes for friends and families across the community. Lending a helping on the day, and attended the event included representatives from: 

  • Lifeline
  • Headspace Dubbo 
  • NSW Police 
  • Dubbo Regional Council- Communities for Children, Creative Community Concepts 
  • Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS) 
  • Mission Australia 
  • Apollo House 
  • Project Walwaay 
  • Aboriginal Affairs NSW

The day saw various activities for people of all ages, including Foam Ten Pin Bowling, Rugby League Skills and Drills, Jumping Castles, Touch Football, League Tag with the biggest hit being the Snow Cones!  

The team at Project Walwaay, a proactive policing program that provides outlets for designated officers to work with at-risk youth in the community – also took care of BBQ duties on the day. 

DHUB Coordinator, Brooke Mallison reflected on this proud community event for the people of Wellington. 

The general atmosphere was excellent, with over 150 people across the community attending.  The show of support and resilience from everyone involved was overwhelming, to say the least, and we would like to say a big thanks to everyone who attended and lent a helping hand on the day.
