At the end of last year, a group of Arup employees from around Australia volunteered at the Smith Family’s Christmas Toy and Book Appeal.
This involved sorting and packing presents for disadvantaged children across the country and also delivering the packages to families. This gesture of goodwill ensures that all Australian families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate life.
Our terrific volunteers (some of their partners helped too!) were:
Ainslie Blunck, Alistair Morrison, Beth Dorsett, Caroline Rockey, Dana Shelton, Daniel Lambert, Frances McNulty, Jeff Booker, Jessica Watts, Kai-Shian Tan, Larissa Stevens, Lian Heather, Lyn Townsend, Nathan Roberts, Peter Luong, Romina Macalinao, Samantha Webb, Sarah Higginson, Stuart Pearson, Tania Stephens.
The Smith Family continues to provide opportunities for disadvantaged Australians to participate fully in society and we believe that Christmas is a time when all Australians should feel they belong, regardless of circumstances.
