Volunteering at the 2023 Special Children's Christmas Party

Volunteers from the Australian Mutuals Foundation had the exciting opportunity to accompany children from Barnardos Australia to the 2023 Sydney Special Children’s Christmas Party held at Rosehill Gardens on 6 December 2023.

 

The Australian Mutuals Foundation proudly supported the day with a total of 9 volunteers from Australian Mutual Bank, Unity Bank, First Choice Credit Union and G&C Mutual offering to provide assistance to help a group of children supported by Barnardos Australia enjoy a day of Christmas cheer.


At the event, the children were treated to a special day of live music, yummy food, fun rides, interactive games, face painting and many more fun activities. There was a special appearance from Santa and each child went home with a show bag and toy.


The Special Children’s Christmas Parties aim to give marginalised children the chance to enjoy the magic of the festive season in a safe and welcoming environment.


The event provides a unique experience for children with special needs or those from disadvantaged circumstances who may otherwise miss out at Christmas time.

 

While the focus of the event is to provide a fun day out for the children and their families, it’s also a heartwarming and rewarding experience for the volunteers who make a real difference and help put smiles on the children who attend.

 

The Australian Mutuals Foundation is proud to be the top corporate partner to Barnardos Australia - one of Australia’s leading children’s charities.
