On behalf of Baptcare, our families and children, I want to sincerely thank our major sponsor

A long time AE Smith customer, Baptcare is a not-for-profit organisation based in Victoria and Tasmania supporting children in Melbourne’s North and West through foster care, disability care and a range of other family services. The popular community Christmas event brightens up the day of hundreds of children – with a visit from Father Christmas a crowd favourite.

“Baptcare values the opportunity to hold such an event for our families, providing a free and fun filled party for the beautiful children and families we provide services for,” said Marita Scott, Baptcare’s General Manager Family and Community Services.

AE Smith Service, Melbourne General Manager, Peter McCarthy said the involvement with the Christmas Party was a small but important part of their community focus, and something all of the staff really enjoyed being a part of.

“While they are also a long time client we take great pride in helping, being able to support Baptcare at events like their family Christmas Party is a wonderful way to nurture our relationship,” says Peter.

“Seeing families having some care free fun and smiling helps us realise how important our support is and we look forward to it continuing.”
