Raf­fle for refuge

North Coast Weekender - - Opinion -

WAN­NEROO Lions Club’s Easter raf­fle raised nearly $1000 for a lo­cal women’s refuge.

Club mem­bers ran a fundrais­ing stall at Wan­neroo Cen­tral shop­ping cen­tre over Easter, with lucky win­ners en­joy­ing ham­pers filled with tasty treats.

“We even had a few amaz­ingly gen­er­ous in­di­vid­u­als who gave dona­tions on top of pur­chas­ing their raf­fle ticket,” mem­ber Glenys Fricker said.

“It just re­minds you of how great our lo­cal com­mu­nity is when it comes to sup­port­ing lo­cal causes.”

Part of the raf­fle pro­ceeds went to pro­vid­ing Easter eggs to the refuge for use in its chil­dren’s egg hunt.
