Are you looking for something to do in the month of February? Well look no further…..
First up we invite buddies to join us in Liverpool for a bite to eat. This is followed by a trip to Bronte for a beach day; then, later in the month we partake in a Gig Buddies first: a Monday morning in the pub for the Super Bowl!
We're off to North Sydney’s outdoor cinema next for the Whitney Houston biopic ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, and we conclude things with a trip to Moore Park for a night of comedy.

And the crowd goes wild!
On the subject of our socials, this is your LAST CHANCE to buy tickets for this Saturday’s A-League clash between high flying Central Coast Mariners and Western Sydney Wanderers.
Taking place at Gosford’s Industree Group Stadium, the game sees the Mariners - Australia’s top scorers, take on third place Western Sydney. Kick off is 7.45pm.

Out and about
Continuing with our social gatherings, we caught up with buddies at two different gigs last week.
First up, we headed to Club Parramatta for food and drinks last Thursday (19/1).
Then, due to the wet weather we were forced to move Sunday’s planned catch up at the beach to an indoor setting, meeting up with buddies at Club Palm Beach instead.
Thanks to everyone who joined us in the west and on the northern beaches. To see more photos from both gatherings, click here.
Each and every week we invite buddies to connect with us for our weekly chat.
Our chats take place via Zoom. To attend get in touch via text: 0422 061 990 or Facebook Messenger.
Five of the finest
It’s been a busy week on the pairing front.
We’re delighted to welcome the following FIVE matches to the team: Mitchell and Nicholas (top left, L - R), Alex and Jackson (top right, L - R), Marc and Olivia (bottom left, L - R), Joseph and Scott (bottom right, L - R), plus Jolanda and Lyndel (not pictured).
Likewise, we’d like to welcome our two newest volunteers.
Thanks to Claudia and Pume (L - R) for logging on last week for training. We look forward to pairing you both up soon.
Connecting the dots….
Towards the end of 2022 we asked buddies, volunteers and our supporters for feedback on ways to improve the project.
One suggestion put forward was for buddies to expand their social circles with others who live within their same area.
We love this idea.
However, due to the ongoing work involved in facilitating the Gig Buddies project, we do not have the capacity to drive such a program: volunteer training, overseeing buddy pairings, organising social events, checking in with participants, plus the required administration means we unfortunately do not have the time or hands to play a part.
Therefore, we’re reaching out our community to find out if this could be facilitated by buddies.
Please share your thoughts by completing our survey. Load up this link to get involved.
