DESPITE some rainy weather, more than 70 grandcarers and their grandchildren enjoyed four days of fun, relaxation and getting away from it all at Fairbridge Village.

Thanks to the generosity of major sponsors such as Alcoa and many crowdfunding donors, grandcarers who have full time care of grandchildren with little government funding, enjoyed activities such as snake handling, circus skills, an Alcoa tour, outdoor activities, arts and crafts.

The group was greeted with a Noongar welcome and fire lighting ceremony from the Fairbridge cultural team and COOL co-ordinator, Cerrie Beech along with some volunteers.
