Vollies help with move
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.”
