Recognise the face on the Knox City Council’s Knox Over 55s Zest for life brochure? That’s our very own community leader Eddie Atacador, founder of the Knox Community Chest Enthusiasts (KCCE).

The brochure lists programs of events, activities and social groups, under which KCCE was included. A copy can be requested through the Knox City website.

The KCCE sets up chess boards every Thursdays, at the Westfield Knox Community Space, between 10.30am and 3pm. Seniors are welcome to join the games to engage their brains and also socialise with fellow players. KCCE is a multicultural group.

Recently, he was also selected by the Knox councllors to be a member of the Knox Active Ageing Advisory Committee. In this capacity, he can be a voice to give feedback and suggestions to the Council in matters relating to ageing issues in the community.”
