90 SECONDS SPEECH: 2022 Bonner Seniors Expo

The 2022 Bonner Seniors Expo was a massive success, with almost 400 Bonner senior residents through the door. It was fantastic to have this event back in person for the first time since the easing of national COVID restrictions.

The Bonner Seniors Expo provides local businesses, aged-care groups, community groups and government organisations the opportunity to connect with local seniors.

When I was talking to local retirement home resident Margaret, she said that the impacts of COVID-19 were severe on her community, with many feeling isolated, lonely and disconnected from the rest of the world.

Margaret said that events like the Bonner Seniors Expo are important as they help her build relationships within the community and create a sense of belonging.

I would like to thank all of the community groups and businesses that donated lucky door prizes, as well as the stall vendors and speakers who helped to make this day a great success.

I would particularly like to thank Piccardi Fry Lawyers for their generous sponsorship of the seniors expo, which allowed all additional funds raised to be donated to Alzheimer’s Queensland.

The seniors expo is always a highlight in my calendar, and I look forward to making this event bigger and better in 2023.
