Kenja in the Community
CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY 2006
It began as a Clean Up Sydney Harbour Day back in 1989. Seventeen years on, Clean Up the World Day annually involves some 35 million people from 120 countries.
For Kenja in the Community, the journey began in 1994 when a team of enthusiastic volunteers doing the training supplied a site leader, clean up team and mascots; 'Kenja's Fearless Bunyip family', to supervise a section of parkland overlooking Sydney Harbour. Kenja volunteers have contributed each year since in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne and over the last couple of years, at a Parramatta site.
In March of 2006, the Sydney team welcomed the added support of members from the New South Wales Fire Brigade. They arrived in an impressive three trucks and helped clean the harbour site, along with many local community volunteers and a few enthusiastic Kenja Bunyips. What a team!
By the end of the morning, the site was spick and span, the Harbour was dazzling and the Bunyips were tickled pink, having made the most of a photo opportunity with an heroic team of firemen!
