The Liberty Swing was a joint project between Variety Children’s Charity, Burnie Emu Bay Lions Club and Burnie City Council.

Variety Children’s Charity helped source and secure a reconditioned swing.The offer of the reconditioned swing to the Burnie community made the cost to purchase the swing less than half of a brand new swing. Burnie Emu Bay Lions Club generously donated $5,000 to help secure the reconditioned swing to Burnie. Burnie City Council has contributed over $30,000 to this project.

Jess Cox-Patchin was lucky enough to try the completed swing. Check out her reaction in the video below.
