An NDIS participant on the Mid-North Coast had the privilege of meeting his favourite musician following a trip to attend a concert in Sydney.
Bradley, a participant supported by Ability Options, is an avid fan of Australian rapper, Kerser and dreamed of meeting the artist in person. After learning Kerser was performing in Sydney as part of his national tour, Bradley travelled to Sydney so he could meet his idol.
For Brad, his support needs meant extra time and preparation were needed so he could enjoy his holiday with confidence. With support from Ability Options and the Starlight Foundation, Brad worked on crafting an itinerary that was tailored to his needs.
Once everything was organised, Brad, along with his mum and Support Workers, Steven and Michael, travelled to Sydney and settled into their accommodation.
Brad spent the next morning exploring Sydney where he was treated to his choice of lunch – KFC! That afternoon, Brad visited the Enmore Theatre to attend the concert and later joined a crowd of people who were all lining up to meet Kerser. When it was finally his turn, Brad was thrilled to walk into the backstage where he was greeted by his idol.
Brad left the theatre satisfied and thanked Ability Options for helping him create a trip he will remember forever.
“I’m so happy I got to meet Kerser. Thanks to Ability Options’ support, I could go on this trip and live my dream goal,” Brad said.
Michael is happy Brad enjoyed his trip and credits the Starlight Foundation for playing a big role in organising a successful trip.
“Thanks to the Starlight Foundation, Brad travelled to Sydney to meet Kerser. Overall, Bradley handled the trip very well. From a carer’s perspective, it was a pleasure to be a small part of making Brad’s wish come true,” said Michael.
