A liberty swing for Dubbo was important so disabled people could “experience the joy of a ride that most of us take for granted”, one community organisation said.
Challenge Community Services had donated $2000 to Tracy Hanna’s fundraising campaign for a liberty swing at the Dubbo Regional Botanic Garden.
Challenge CEO Barry Murphy said the organisation saw itself as “part of the Dubbo community” and something they were proud to be involved with.
“The liberty swing fundraiser is very much a community project, so it seems just natural that Challenge would contribute to this great project for people with disabilities,” Mr Murphy said.
According to Mr Murphy, the liberty swing provides children who use a wheelchair an opportunity to take part in a fun activity.
“To be able to provide the opportunity for people who are wheelchair-bound to enjoy the excitement of something as simple as a swing in the park is a project we are most pleased to be associated with,” he said.
“One of the most important things for people with a disability is to have a feeling of inclusion.
“The completion of this project and the installation of a liberty swing will clearly show that the citizens of Dubbo really care for some of its most vulnerable people.”
