A downturn in the mining industry has increased unemployment among local families in the Mackay & District Aboriginal, Torres Strait and South Sea Islander community. So when a resourceful group of local women asked ICV to help them build valuable skills in hospitality and retail, Mackay born volunteer Alex was happy to help. Fifteen young women were able to showcase their new skills at a successful inaugural Yester Year Bridal Parade, which is now set to become an annual event in the community’s social calendar.
