Vol­lies help with move

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

MANY hands made light work for Cir­cusWA when vol­un­teers helped set up its new Princess May Park big top.

Al­most a dozen mem­bers of Al­coa Aus­tralia’s Em­ploy­ees at Al­coa for Gay and Les­bian Equal­ity (EA­GLE) vol­un­teered to roll up their sleeves build­ing shelves, stacking props and help­ing out around the site as the not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion made the move from its Old Cus­toms House home of more than 20 years.

Al­coa em­ployee Adam Bobo­j­cov said he knew from ex­pe­ri­ence the good work the or­gan­i­sa­tion did lo­cally and it was an easy de­ci­sion to help them with the move.

“My daugh­ter has been at­tend­ing the Cir­cusWA school for the past four years and I have wit­nessed first-hand the many great things the school has done in our com­mu­nity,” he said.

Cir­cusWA project man­ager Jo Smith said they were over­whelmed by the sup­port.

“We man­aged to get some great work com­pleted and are so grate­ful for ev­ery­one's time,” she said.

“We look for­ward to be­ing able to in­vite Al­coa back to en­joy a show and join in on some classes at The Big Top.”
