For the last four to five years, Sista Fitness Midland has supported MIFWA’s Parent Peer Program by hosting a Christmas tree appeal. From early December, Sista Fitness members can choose a tag on the MIFWA Christmas tree located at the Sista Fitness Midland branch, and buy a gift for someone in need.
The support every year is generous and thoughtful, and the staff and consumers at Sista Fitness are highly supportive and enthusiastic to assist. They tell us they get a lot out of giving as much as the families do from receiving.
“It’s the first Christmas since my child was born that feels mostly good.”
For Christmas 2021, we hosted a small BBQ cooked by Tamara at Rotary Park in Wanneroo that offered a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to meet and socialise together. The children enjoyed the decorating biscuits activity that Claire hosted.
“It brightened up mine and my kids Christmas, hugest thanks from the bottom of our hearts!”
The added highlight of surprise was in gifting to parents and the children.
Parents shared the following with us:
“This was such a good day, I’m overwhelmed by the wonderful, thoughtful gifts we received.”
“It was a great outing, and the gifts were great. My kids both said, at the time, they liked playing with the other kids and made new friends.”
“Thank you for the presents. They’re amazing, got LEGO. It’s the first Christmas since my child was born that feels mostly good. Thank you for all your help.”
“Myself and my two kids had such a great time at the MIFWA Christmas party and absolutely loved our gifts that we each received. Thank you very much, it was such a nice and thoughtful surprise for us.”
“We are so grateful for the kindness and generosity we were given by the wonderful people who donated to the Christmas gifts we received at the parent peer Christmas party. It was unexpected but immensely appreciated. It brightened up mine and my kids Christmas, hugest thanks from the bottom of our hearts! We hope you all have the best year ever <3.”
“I just wanted to extend my thanks to you, the ladies at MIFWA and the Sista Fitness that donated the Christmas gifts for the families.”
“The gifts we received are also lovely and much appreciated! I got a lovely bag of self-care things, which have made me feel very pampered.”
“Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2022.”
