Winston Churchill said “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give!”
We have found this to be such a true statement.
When my wife and I arrived in Melville from the UK two years ago we were looking to spend our retirement years in this wonderful location. However we also wanted to put something into the community.
Having spent a great portion of our business life involved in live theatre we were looking for something that would be a good fit for us.
Finding Spare Parts Puppet Theatre in Fremantle was a dream come true. It combines everything we could ask for.
A wonderfully creative company who have children very much in mind, a great team of people and an exciting working space.
Being a volunteer at Spare Parts is also good for our mental health as well as everything else. We are both stimulated and rewarded at the same time.
Being around such vibrant creativity brings out the ‘inner child’ in us…how good is that!
Thank you, Spare Parts, for letting us be a part of your world…!
