Seniors on the Coffs Coast have more opportunities to get involved in the 2023 NSW Seniors Festival thanks to grant funding provided by the NSW Government.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said Volunteering Coffs Harbour Inc. had received $3,525  for its Volunteering-Connecting for Life project to host a volunteering expo during the festival.

The NSW Seniors Festival is the largest celebration of seniors in the southern hemisphere.

“These community-led activities and events are great for seniors and help keep them connected with their local community during the NSW Seniors Festival,” Mr Singh said.

Minister for Seniors Mark Coure said Volunteering Coffs Harbour joins more than 80 community organisations across the state that have received a share in $200,000 provided by the NSW Government to host activities during the festival.

“Each of these groups are helping make the festival even bigger, giving seniors more opportunities to get involved across the State,” Mr Coure said.

“Seniors are such an important part of our local communities and I am proud to see so many organisations want to help celebrate them.”

The activities hosted by the community groups will take place during the NSW Seniors Festival, which is scheduled to run from 1-12 February 2023.

Each of the 85 activities are to provide seniors an opportunity to get involved during the festival and connect them with their local community, no matter their background or abilities.
