Festival of Voices – Big Sing Bonfire!

On Saturday 3 July Mac Point came alive to the sounds of hundreds of voices, against the backdrop of the Festival of Voices bonfire. The line-up of feel good songs began at 5pm with the official lighting of the Bonfire and a stellar line-up of local performers.

We continued our partnership with Festival of Voices by selling candles to raise money for our 2021 Winter Appeal! A total of $992 was rasied on the night.

The Festival of Voices ran a Corporate Choir Challenge in the lead up to the Big Sing event, which raised $14,496 for our Winter Appeal! How amazing is that.
