Sarah Supports Country Kids
Recently appointed Minister for Early Childhood Education and Aboriginal Affairs, Sarah Mitchell, will be the keynote speaker at Royal Far West’s (RFW) annual Ride for Country Kids Gala Dinner at the Orange Ex-Services’ Club on Tuesday 14 March 2017.
This year over 100 riders will traverse 420km in three days from Wagga Wagga to Orange to raise funds for country children.
RFW is a 93-year strong charity that provides integrated early intervention health and education services to children, families and communities in rural NSW and beyond. RFW’s service aims to address some of the most complex, non-acute health and development concerns - e.g. autism, intellectual disabilities, speech and language problems, mental health concerns and many more – and to improve access to services for families that cannot access the help they need because of geographic isolation or other disadvantage.
The NSW Nationals have a long association with RFW, including former Deputy Premier Troy Grant’s $10 million commitment to RFW’s upcoming Centre for Child Health and Learning. Last year, Melinda Pavey and Nationals’ members Jeremy Scott and Douglas Martin participated in the challenging ride.
