"We decided to get behind Warbo," said Judy Parr, the Manager of Community Services. "We are constantly in contact with cystic fibrosis affected people as it's part of our job here," Ms Parr said. Twenty five of her colleagues have taken up getting tattoos for the cause. Mr Warburton said he was getting very strong support from the public, describing it as "unbelievable." "I wasn't expecting this," he said. "I'm currently booked out for the rest of the week." Mr Warburton said that his original goal was to do 65 tattoos by Friday but this was looking like an underestimate. "I'm suspecting by Friday there will be about 100-plus people who have had a tattoo done," he said. The Home and Community Health Service also has a variety of activities on during the week. The day activities centre will be abuzz with around 20 people per day using it and on Thursday it will be the venue for a Biggest Morning Tea, which the public is invited to attend for the cost of a donation.
