Barry Crocker meets the prime minister for the Adopt-A-Pensioner Campaign

June 2011

Earlier this week Blue Pie’s Barry Crocker met with Prime Minister Julia Gillard to discuss propositions for the Adopt-A-Pensioner campaign, which he is heavily involved in.

Amongst his propositions, the Adopt-A-Pensioner campaign will now be working with THE ARGUES: THE MOVIE, encouraging Australians to Adopt-A-Pensioner by taking a pensioner to the movie for free!

Large supermarkets including Coles, Woolworths and even Dick Smith have already donated large sums towards the campaign. As a celebrity campaigner, Barry Crocker was featured on Channel 7’s Today Tonight for all his hard work in making things happen for the pensioners of Australia.

After pitching the idea of the ‘take a pensioner to THE ARGUES for free’ campaign to Ms Gillard, she responded: “That is a fantastic idea and a great thing to do. Congratulations!”

So go ahead and Adopt-A-Pensioner to take your pensioner to see THE ARGUES: THE MOVIE for free!

A big thank you to Barry Crocker for his dedicated work with the pensioners.
