Memories of Oktoberfest Brisbane

As the kegs and tents are rolled away, the biggest Oktoberfest festival outside of Munich finished in style for 2015. Youngcare has been the charity partner since 2008 and it was gratifying to hear that so many patrons already knew about Youngcare. Youngcare volunteers were in the thick of it both weekends and worked tirelessly in the hot sunshine.  There are many memories from the seven days spent at Oktoberfest:

From Andrew; I just wanted to say that everything went perfectly today, Sunday, and that we had an amazing time working with Youngcare.  It’s something that all the volunteers really enjoyed and we hope we can work with you again the future.

From Stephanie; “Volunteering at Oktoberfest for Youngcare was a fantastic experience for the Page Group.  We got to interact with the children in both German and English, understand the good cause Youngcare work towards and had a lot of fun along the way.  Thanks again”.

From Cathy; I volunteered for Youngcare for the first time and I am just amazed how so many volunteers and staff are dedicating their time and effort to help others and treat those who need high care needs as a part of their families.
