Toowoomba’s favourite and Australia’s largest community Christmas event, Toowoomba’s 2022 Christmas Wonderland is seeking enthusiastic and festive-loving volunteers to help at this year’s 20th Anniversary event.
Since its inception, Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland has welcomed over one million visitors and has returned over $1.32 million back to the local community through its beneficiaries.
Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland is proudly presented by the Lions Club of Toowoomba West, and it takes thousands of volunteer hours to set up the event, open nightly and pack up.
Project Chairman, Lion Marshall Cox, is calling on the generous people of the Toowoomba area to come and help with this year’s event. “In previous years we have relied on the generous people of Toowoomba to help us with this fantastic family event and this year is no different,” he said.
“I’m asking anyone who would like to help bring the joy of Christmas to our community to go to our website and register as a volunteer. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated, and you get to work with like-minded locals.”
