Many festival-goers chatted with vivacious SCS nurses and learned about local health supports; others took advice from Hunters Hill State Emergency Services about protecting homes in an area surrounded by bushland. They were lucky to commandeer 100 festival marshals – mainly overseas students from the University of Sydney's School of Business – with help from Debbi Gomel, the faculty's Job Smart Volunteer Coordinator. “It also enhances their confidence as well as social and language skills. ” The day's revenue of $30,000 will help build local support services from SCS, Hunters Hill-Ryde Men's Shed, Hunters Hill State Emergency Service and the Gladesville branch of the St John's Ambulance Service – which all enable locals to lead safer, healthier, independent lives.
