Canberra Cruises & Parties Open Day by the Lake

On Sunday 1st November, Dainere’s Rainbow were so extremely humbled and honoured to join the incredible Clint and Charmaine from Canberra Cruises & Parties and the marvellous Mel from Mels Massage for a truly splendiferous and special day at the Canberra Cruises & Parties Open Day by the Lake.

It was a rather windy and overcast day where we were set up at Commonwealth Place, Lake Burley Griffin but as the smell of freshly barbequed sausages filled the air, the sun shone and brought many people out for a lovely day by the Lake.

The day was one of working together and supporting each other whilst making a difference and bringing hope.

Many people went aboard the ‘Maid Marion’ for a tour to find out the truly unique and perfect experiences they could have for their next celebration or event and were able to try out the onboard slushies.  Others enjoyed a phenomenal and relaxing neck and shoulder massage by the Lake.  The Dainere’s Rainbow Team were able to speak to several people who were unaware of the work of Dainere’s Rainbow or the shocking statistics of paediatric brain tumours.

All funds raised on the day through the sale of the COVID Safe Sausage Sizzle, slushie sales and seated massages went to Dainere’s Rainbow.  An amazing $99.00 was raised on the day and during these most unprecedented and most difficult times, when all our usual fundraising and awareness raising events have been cancelled, these funds mean more than words can express and allow research to continue.

If you would like to support these incredible local businesses who are helping to make a difference, please consider booking a party on the water with Canberra Cruise & Parties. or book your next remedial or relaxation massage, with the experienced and caring team at Mels Massage.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.
