Karate club do­nates light tower to Kar­ratha SES

Pilbara News - - News - ■ Louise Alling­ham

Kar­ratha SES has re­ceived a light tower thanks to a do­na­tion from the Kar­ratha Sho­tokan Karate Club.

The Kar­ratha Sho­tokan Karate club is run by Fiona and Ian El­lis who charge a small fee to stu­dents to cover op­er­a­tion costs and do­nate any ex­cess to a se­lected char­ity.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful 2015 they de­cided to do­nate their money to the Kar­ratha SES of which they have been mem­bers for sev­eral years.

“The light rep­re­sents the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion ev­ery SES mem­ber makes to the com­mu­nity as they are all shin­ing ex­am­ples of what makes the Kar­ratha SES such a great unit to be in­volved with,” Mrs El­lis said.

Kar­ratha SES man­ager and op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer Donna Walker said the light tower will im­prove night work vis­i­bil­ity for the SES team.

“The ben­e­fit of this par­tic­u­lar type of light is when you look into it you don’t get a glare from it; you’re not blinded by it so it pro­vides more of an am­bi­ent nat­u­ral light,” she said.
