Additional information: Our community has some of the most interesting characters! From surviving the Second World War, to coming over by boat to setting up the iconic Ford Factory, our ageing community is looking for new friends to come and share a cuppa and have a chat. Australian Multicultural Community Services is currently recruiting volunteers.
