Getting their groove on

19 May 2016 in Customers in the community, Stories

The Interchange Customer Social Club got their groove on and hosted yet another awesome event yesterday, with a disco at the Cockburn Youth Centre.

Louise having a danceMore than 70 people from all seven service centres flooded the dancefloor for a boogie, with the most awesome dance moves a close tie between Marc and Derek from Rockingham. Though Annette and Louisa also gave them a run for their money!

But it wasn’t just the tunes coming from the newly purchased karaoke machine that proved to be a hit – though it was a very popular new addition. Customers who meet for a regular music group at the centre also joined in the fun with their drums, bringing them into the disco and starting up a impromptu jam session.

Each Service Centre contributed something to make the event a success, from Spearwood with the karaoke machine (which was generously donated by the Uniting Church in the City), to Osborne Park who supplied the drinks and Rockingham who supplied the pizzas.Loving the music!

The Social Club is made up of customers and staff who meet once a month to plan customer events. Events are decided by democratic vote and the disco was back this month due to popular demand.  Customers have voted to run an Interchange Ten Pin Bowling competition at the next event, which is scheduled to take place in July.
