Sawtell Chilli Festival Round-Up


Well I have to say this year’s Sawtell Chilli Festival was by far the best I have ever been to. It was such a glorious day, so many people and so much to do and see, everyone had a fantastic time.

For the first time I was there with a few various helpers doing Coffs for Kids Temporary Tattoos. It was so fantastic to meet some of Coffs for Kids followers and have a chat! Thanks for popping by and I hope your kids loved their tattoos.

I presented the Sawtell Chilli Festival and the Coffs for Kids Community Kids Awards at around 2.30pm on the main stage. To help me was Batman (Andrew from The Smileys), Kirsty Walker (from Kirsty’s Daycare) and Tim (Tabatinga).


Here are the winners:

1st Place: Amy H. from Mary Help of Christians. Amy (1oyrs) was chosen because she shaved her head for a cure and raised $1000.05 for cancer research.

Tied 2nd/3rd place: Leith H. and Harry W. from Bishop Druitt College (both 9yrs old) baked and sold cupcakes to raise money for a school in Cambodia.

Achievement awards:

Jayke H. from Sandy Beach Public, Emerson B. from Woolgoolga Public, Lilli V. from Narranga Public, Jake M. from JPC, Kooper C. from Corindi PS and Lachlan G from Crossmaglen PS.

Congratulations, to all those fantastic kids. We had some really amazing nominations so it was difficult to choose – Coffs is FULL of great kids!

For the winners in the Telstra Colouring In Competition please keep an eye on the Sawtell Chilli Festival Facebook page where they will be announced soon.
