Ipswich City Council’s Christmas Wonderland 2020

Our corporation were one of five (5) charities selected to participate in Council’s Christmas Wonderland event to receive a share in the ticket sales from the event.  All we had to do was provide seven of our Crossfire volunteers to guide patrons as they moved through the wonderland.   All volunteers enjoyed meeting and greeting members of the community and certainly took in the spectacular views of the Christmas lights.  Thank you to the Ipswich City Council and Ipswich community for having us!
