Retired miners bring Christmas cheer to special kids

November 20, 2019

Our retired members in Mackay had a busy day last Saturday, cooking up a storm for children with special needs and their families and carers at the second annual Special Children’s Christmas Party.

The Mackay Branch of the Retired Mineworkers’ Association voted to support the event, donating the hire of a cold room for the day and giving their time to man the barbecue.

Children had a wonderful time with games, rides, activities and Christmas goodies, parents and carers had the opportunity to relax, and our retired members cooked and served over 850 sausages.

Well done to all involved.
