Special Christmas Party and AMF
The Australian Mutuals Foundation is proud to be one of Barnardos Australia’s top corporate partners.
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, providing assistance to a group of children supported by Barnardos Australia to 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 activities. There was a special appearance from Santa and each child went home with a show bag and toy.
The Special Children’s Christmas Party aims to give marginalised children the chance to enjoy the magic of Christmas in a safe and welcoming environment. It 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 was also a heartwarming and rewarding experience for the volunteers who made a real difference and helped put smiles on the children’s faces.
