This year marks Autopia’s sixth year supporting Barnardos’ Gifts for Kids Christmas Gift Appeal to ensure that the thousands of disadvantaged Australian children get the opportunity to open a present on Christmas Day.
Supporting the toy drive Christmas appeal is a year round contribution by the team at Autopia. Driven entirely by our staff, who once a quarter organise a ‘Barnardos Lunch’ where our finest cooks prepare some delicious food for the entire staff and a donation is required in exchange for some homemade treats.
This year was no different, raising nearly $2k worth of toys through staff contributions and Autopia’s donation matching program, bringing our overall contribution through the past five years to over $10k.
We are very proud and look forward to our Barnardos lunches and further supporting thousands of vulnerable children around Australia in 2019. Please remember it’s never too late to help a child in need.

For over 120 years Barnardos has been at the forefront of providing child welfare services and has embraced a tradition of innovation and holistic approach in their quest to find real, permanent solutions for Australian children in desperate need.
Barnardos builds relationships between children, young people, their families and the community. They advocate for children and young people and contribute to community knowledge about the issues that impact on society as a whole. By supporting the work of Barnardos, you can create new dreams and outcomes to offer the adults of tomorrow a future free from neglect.
