On 6 December 2014, the Disabled People’s Association (DPA) held a Meet and Greet Lunch at DPA’s office. 31 people attended the event, including DPA members, families, staff and volunteers. This event was held to mark the International Day of People with Disabilities, and also for DPA members and volunteers to interact and enjoy the spirit of togetherness.

From 12 pm to 1 pm, everyone enjoyed a buffet lunch and mingling session. Afterwards DPA’s Advocacy Consultant, Ms Asha Karen, conducted a short presentation for volunteers. Volunteers were briefed on DPA’s advocacy initiatives, as well as how they can get involved in DPA’s current and future projects.They were invited to contact DPA if they are interested in working with the team.

Finally at 1:30 pm, DPA members and volunteers were entertained by magician Thomas DeVoe who had kindly volunteered his time. Audience members were invited to participate in Thomas’ magic performance such as bending metal spoons with their minds and mind reading a string of numbers Thomas had picked.

At 2:15 pm, the event ended with a lucky dip and two happy members walked away with Royal Sporting House vouchers.
