A great way to reach out into the community is through charity events. There are so many options that it would be easy to pick a couple to do a year that would match your own areas of interest.
The advantages these events give is that you will:
- Network with like-minded people.
- Enjoy an event or activity you would no normally tackle
- Gain a new interest or skill
- Build partnerships within your community.
It is also in these kind of arenas that people relax and connect.
- Charity golf days,
- Charity balls/dinners
- Corporate challenges (ie lawn bowls)
- Trivia nights.
- Art shows
- Fun runs
- Hills Relay For Life
At the end of the event you would have helped an organisation, made new connections and come away feeling entertained and really good about yourself.
Some events are just a few hours some are longer.
The Hills Shire Times or your local newsletter has huge lists of forthcoming events in its paper each week or check on the Hills Shire Council's or your local council website event calendar.
