Volunteering at Community Cinemas
Four of our WA head office staff have committed to this 2016/2017 season of volunteering for a wonderful charity called Telethon Community Cinemas.
Telethon Community Cinemas is Perth’s family-friendly community outdoor cinema, run entirely by volunteers. All of the profits are donated back to children’s charities that improve the quality of children’s lives. To date, Community Cinemas have raised $7 million.
My name is Georgie and I am the Marketing Coordinator for Beyond Bank. On my first night as a volunteer, I arrived with my colleagues to find an amazing group of people, fellow volunteering peers, many of whom have been doing this for a few years. Right away they shared their knowledge and enthusiasm for the jobs at hand, leaving us with the confidence we needed to work the night as movie hosts. We all had different roles to master, all of which was guided by our wonderful night manager, making it an easy experience.
By the end of the night I felt on top of the world. The few hours I gave up that night allowed me to be part of this wonderful team of volunteers. Every fortnight that I volunteer, I know our volunteer team truly is “creating more good together” at Telethon Community Cinemas.
There are three venues hosting the outdoor cinemas experience and they are Burswood, Murdoch University and Bassendean. To find out more details please visit www.communitycinemas.com.au
