Food­bank in fi­nal ap­peal


Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

IT was a di­verse, but cer­tainly gen­er­ous, collection of peo­ple who gath­ered at Gov­ern­ment House last week to give a fi­nal push to Food­bank’s 2016 Christ­mas Ap­peal.

The link be­tween the 15 well­known West Aus­tralians, who in­cluded Gover­nor Kerry San­der­son, former politi­cian and RSLWA pres­i­dent Graham Ed­wards, former WA Aus­tralian of the Year Lyn Bea­z­ley and Par­a­lympian Adam Deans, is that they all thrive as Aus­tralia Day WA am­bas­sadors.

The 15 am­bas­sadors were se­lected in recog­ni­tion of their achieve­ments and strong Aussie val­ues and con­tri­bu­tion through­out the year.

On Aus­tralia Day, they vol­un­teer their time to visit lo­cal WA com­mu­ni­ties, shar­ing their in­spir­ing stories and par­tic­i­pat­ing in cel­e­bra­tions.

There is still time to give food items to the Ap­peal and help fam­i­lies in need at Christ­mas.

Take do­na­tions to any Hawai­ian Shop­ping Cen­tre and drop them in the collection boxes.
