On Friday 16th October Kadina is set to be the loudest place in South Australia. The community has come together in an incredible manner to support the Cora Barclay Centre and its annual fundraising event; Loud Shirt Day.
Spearheaded by Loud Shirt Day Regional Ambassador and Kadina resident Luke Halls the event has brought together local businesses, the APEX Club, Council and Yorke Peninsula Tourism for a day of outrageously bright fun.
Starting in the lead up to Loud Shirt Day the APEX Express in the centre of the town will be yarn bombed. Already local crafters are creating pieces of knitting of crochet that will be joined together to cover the entire train, and the main street.
This burst of colour in the Centre of town will also set the scene for a family day on Loud Shirt Day itself (Friday 16th October), which will include Frozen performers, a bouncy castle, children’s activities and lots of fun and games for the whole family.
The final blast of colour for Loud Shirt Day will come from the Loud Bowling Night being held at Kadina Bowling Club. Instead of the usual bowling whites, participants are asked to come along in their brightest attire and take part in a social game of bowls. Music, cocktails in flashing cups, raffles, a huge live auction and fashion parade will also take place on the night.
The colour explosion in Kadina isn’t just for fun though. The money raised by the community during Loud Shirt Day will support South Australia’s own Cora Barclay Centre. The Cora Barclay Centre gives children who are deaf or hearing impaired the opportunity to learn to listen, speak and communicate with the world. The Centre support children’s from all parts of South Australia through its video conferencing program. The Centre relies on community support to fund 42% of its annual costs.
