Barton Job Club Christmas Wonderland
Congratulations to Rod Shepherd, Dan Farley and the amazing Barton Job Club team on their innovative and inspired Christmas community outreach project.
With everything from crafts to Christmas karaoke – Barton Christmas Wonderland turned out to be a very special evening for the local community. The main hall was packed with activity and fun for everyone – about 250 people of all ages came along over the course of the day.
Adults and children queuing for up to 20 mins to enter Santa’s Grotto were already asking if it would be held again next year!
This is certainly the kind of initiative which captures people’s imagination, improves wellbeing and demonstrates the broader meaning of work and its value. By encouraging people to create gifts and conjuring up a magical wonderland experience, the Job Club communicated a real message of love which will have positive influence in the community.
