Screening at the Queen Elizabeth II Seniors and Community Centre on Wednesday, October 16 is the inspirational documentary The Ride.
Supported by Fairholme Disability Support Group, Lotterywest and Disability Services Commission, The Ride is touring regional towns in Western Australia to promote road safety and help the community have a better understanding of living with a disability.
The documentary will tour to a total of 45 towns and will give audiences the opportunity to talk to the film’s Executive Producer Jim Cairns, who is also one of the men featured in the film.
There will be two sessions open for the public, one at 2pm and the second at 7pm. Entry is $5 for adults and $1 for children.
While advocating the government initiative “Count Me In: Disability Future Directions”, The Ride will inspire and educate both the young and the old on road safety and to dissipate the stigma associated with being disabled.
As part of the City’s commitment to strive through its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, to meet and respond to the needs of people living with a disability; The Ride extends the awareness of living with a disability.
