GOOD taste went out the window on Friday when Orange City Council staff and its youth council pulled on their paisley and polka dot shirts to raise money for the Alliance for Deaf Children and celebrate Loud Shirt Day.
Mayor John Davis said he was delighted to see so many council staff get behind the event by donning a loud shirt for the day.
“I was at road construction zone with the council corporate and community relations manager Nick Redmond,” Cr Davis said.
“Nick’s shirt was so loud he didn’t need a high-visibility fluoro vest to be seen on the work site.”
A barbecue was also staged in Robertson Park where people were encouraged to enjoy the live music, meet the youth council and put forward ideas on ways to make Orange a better place for young people.
The Alliance for Deaf Children was formed in 2003 and represents six organisations in Australia and New Zealand established to support deaf children and their families.
The organisations include: Hear and Say Centre, Taralye, Telethon Speech and Hearing, The Cora Barclay Centre, The Shepherd Centre and The Hearing House.
