Be My Koorda

Steve Summerhayes and the team from Be My Koorda Aboriginal Support Group (be my friend) came together yesterday for a photo shoot with the Community Newspaper Group to mark the handover of the UCW bus. UCW has a close relationship with the program, which supports Aboriginal children living with autism and their parents.

The bus hand-over came about when Evelyn McKay from Be My Koorda caught up with Steve and Josey Hansen over a cuppa earlier this year and mentioned how owning a bus was at the top of the group’s wish list. In what was a very fortunate coincidence, Steve was able to tell her “we just happen to have one!” After a spot of maintenance and completion of the paperwork, the keys changed hands in February.

Evelyn said the kids are over the moon with the bus and are busily working on designs to make it really stand out. In the meantime, we’re on the hunt for a painting or sign writing company willing to come on-board to help decorate this blank canvas, which will be used to take children to camps, along with picnics, barbecues, workshops and other outings.
