The 2014 ASG Annual Sober Walk was held at Whitmore Square on 31st October.
Along with ASG staff members there were many participants from the community, including Hon Ian Hunter – MLC Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation who joined in on the Walk around Whitmore Square. We also had in attendance David Brown – Chief Executive, Department for Correctional Services and Richard King – Director for Aboriginal Services.
The aim of the day was to show the community what services are available to assist them to live and maintain a sober lifestyle. ASG invited other organisations that provide vital services the Adelaide community to sponsor and to get involved on the day by having information stalls on their services.
Throughout the day we had many activities to keep the participants entertained including.
• Alistair Black, Didgeridoo Musician
• Leon Hewer, Singer / Acoustic Guitar
• Face painter
• Balloon Animals
Lunch was provided and members of Hope Church generously donated their time and cooked the BBQ to perfection.
This was a great day had by all and as predicted, the event was a major success.
Many thanks to all our sponsors who made the event possible.
