Harvey event to get disco toes tapping

Jacinta CantatoreHarvey-Waroona Reporter

Harvey Occasional Childcare Centre is inviting people from Harvey and surrounds to take part in its first ever Easter Disco on Friday.

The fundraiser event, which runs from 4pm-6pm, aims to raise money to cover the cost of transitioning the centre from an occasional day care to a long day care centre.

“Funding for occasional care has been significantly reduced, so in order to receive future funding, especially for any special needs children, we need to transition to a long day care centre,” centre chairwoman and event organiser Rebecca Tolkaczow said.

Any extra money from the disco will go towards the centre’s next big project – a shade sail to cover the sand pit play area.

The Easter Disco is for children aged between two and seven and their families to enjoy dancing, games, face-painting and raffles.

“There are not a lot of discos around, and because kids all love music and dancing around we thought we’d give it a try,” Ms Tolkaczow said.

Tickets are $10 per child which includes a drink, sausage sizzle and an Easter egg.

Entry is free for parents and guardians, with a sausage sizzle and drink combo available for $5. Tea and coffee will also be available.

There will also be door prizes including a chocolate hamper which has been tempting the children and grown-ups since it was donated to the centre last week.

“Donna Fiorenza donated that hamper and it is just so beautiful. I’d love to be the person who wins that,” Ms Tolkaczow said.
