Kidsflix

Kidsflix is a program enabling children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and other disabilities to have an ‘out of the ordinary day’ with their families at the movies. In addition to the film screening, family entertainment includes costumed performers, face and hand painting, balloon twisting – and in December, children receive a visit from Santa. Around 6,500 children take part in the program every year at various sites across Sydney and regional areas throughout New South Wales. We are always on the look out for volunteers to help bring a smile to children’s faces during a fun day out at a Kidsflix event. To volunteer with us at Kidsflix, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator on 02 9857 3300 or at volunteers@arthritisnsw.org.au
