Cheery group spreads birthday love

THERE'S a lot of happy people in Currumbin and anyone in the region is welcome to share their joy.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary today is the Currumbin Happy Group.

"Everyone knows laughter is the best medicine and that happiness is essential to our wellbeing," said the group's secretary Alan Cobb.

30 years is a lot of happiness and Mr Cobb is keen to let the world know that they too can be a part of the friendship group that helps lonely, isolated, disabled, frail or elderly people in the community find social contact.

This wonderful club was formed by the Coolangatta Community Health Sisters in 1982 when they recognised the need for a venue where people could come together and dispel the barriers that isolate them, including lack of transport, family breakdown.

"The group aims to encourage and assist people to share old and new interests, form friendships in a caring and sharing atmosphere and have fun with a range of activities," Mr Cobb said.

"Sing -alongs, live entertainment, coach outings, lunches, raffle and numerous scrumptious morning teas are all part of the fun."

Transport is provided and a warm welcome awaits.

The Currumbin happy group meets every Tuesday at 9am at the Share N Care Hall at 10th Avenue, Palm Beach.

Membership is free and admission is just $3.

Come on. Don't sit at home and mope when friendship, warmth and lots of laughs are waiting for you at The Currumbin Happy Group.

Call Alan on 07 5524 4403 for more information.
