The PCYC Emergency Services Cadets raised some much-needed funds at the Gin Gin outdoor movie night.

About 350 Gin Gin residents enjoyed some family fun at the 12 Days of Christmas outdoor movie night, raising funds for the PCYC Emergency Services Cadets.

The Bundaberg Regional Council event was hosted by the Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre and saw the community come together to deliver sleigh loads of family fun.

The Gin Gin Chaplaincy performed carols before the screening of movie Get Santa.

The chaplaincy also had a donut stall, supported by an emergency services cadets barbecue and the Gin Gin Lions Club’s handed out lollies and drinks.

All up, the night raised $600 for the cadets to take part in a bus trip to train with other emergency services groups.

Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre coordinator Venessa Van Peype said the 12 Days of Christmas event had received a very positive response.

“The community is already hoping to see it back again,” Venessa said.

“A lot of people came to enjoy the Christmas carols too.

“There was a real community feel.

“It was a great family event, the kids loved it and there was plenty of fun for all ages.”

Venessa said the Gin Gin outdoor movie night was made possible with the generous support of local community group volunteers, local businesses and funding by Thriving Queensland Communities – Round 3 and the Australian Government Bushfire Recovery Initiative.

Photographer Emma Woodbright also attended to capture the occasion.
