Celebrity Chef Cecilia Lau will be at the New Empress Restaurant in West Ryde on Sunday October 8 from 11am.

Chef Cecelia Lau will cook a five course meal to celebrate the launch of the “Our Ryde” app for Ryde’s Differently Abled People Association.

The event is being promoted by Vincent Yu to help people know Ryde and have a say.

“The project has been made possible by people with Autism for the general public with assistance from the City of Ryde’s Small Grants Program,” he said.

The event costs $10 per person and the restaurant is located on the corner of Marsden Road and Victoria Road and guests will receive a free bottle of sauce.

For bookings phone Vincent on 0417 418 180.

Differently Abled People Association Inc was founded by parents and young people who have a disability including autism spectrum disorder to meet the support needs of those young people and help them discover and develop their abilities and talents to achieve greater independence in the areas of life and social skills, leisure and creative pursuits, communications and technology skills and vocational skills.

The Association’s Executive committee member Vincent Yu is one of the founders and a director of DAPA.

Some members have successfully integrated into full time employment and established families of their own.

Their new local smart phone application “Our Ryde” will enable residents having easy access to Ryde Council’s management and facilities.

This Application is free for you to download onto your mobile phones and iPads which will assist you to raise suggestions with improved accessibility.
