Specky comes to Fitzroy

IMG 5533v2Specky Dreaming in Fitzroy

More than sixty children took fitness and fun to the extreme each day over the Easter break in Fitzroy Crossing when Specky Dreaming came to town.

For four evenings, children lined up to be part of the new footy frenzy which has only been to a few locations in Australia to date.

Dion Brownfield, one of the masterminds behind the Darwin-based Indigenous Hip Hop Project, is the man behind Specky Dreaming. It is a highly engaging free football event which involves inflatable equipment to teach endurance and skills - keeping children fit while having fun.

A sponsorship by Yapawarnti Fund enabled Specky Dreaming to come to Fitzroy and the Women's Centre provided accommodation for the Specky crew.

"Big shout out to Yapawarnti for supporting Specky Dreaming in Fitzroy Crossing for the school holidays, it was so awesome to see so many young people participating, getting active, chucking Speckys and talking about positive health, Remember to make water your number one choice, and try to eat 2 fruit 5 veg a day," Dion said.

Yapawarnti and Specky Dreaming would like to thank everyone who assisted with making the event possible for the children of Fitzroy, including the Shire for providing the venue.

The Yapawarnti Fund is set up to invest in the youth of Fitzroy Crossing and surrounding communities. Leedal Pty Ltd provides the funding for Yapawarnti but welcomes partnerships to deliver stronger programs and contributions to the Fund. For more information, go to "Donate Now" on our website.

Tarunda IGA takes out another award

Tarunda IGA supermarket has won a prestigious Kimberley Small Business Award at a ceremony on 6 September, 2013.

The Small Business Centres of the Kimberley Region judged many entries and announced Tarunda IGA the Best Franchise of the Kimberley Region.

Tarunda IGA General Manager Kevin Murkami accepted the award at the ceremoy which was also attended by Leedal Chairman Patrick Green.

Patrick said it was a very proud day for Leedal as there had been a lot of hard work, sweat and tears go into rebuilding the original supermarket which burned to the ground three years ago.

Leedal's Chief Operating Officer John Rodrigues oversaw the rebuild and ensured the new supermarket had the best layout, freshest produce and best service for the people of Fitzroy.

IGA Tarunda helps sow seeds

The special needs students at Fitzroy Valley District High School are planting a vegetable garden at their school.

And who else better to support them than the suppliers of fresh fruit and vegetables to the Fitzroy community, IGA Tarunda.

Tarunda IGA has donated $500 to support the development of the school vegetable garden.

Principal Donna Bridge is right behind the project of the Year 12 and 13 special needs students.
