Do­na­tions a boon for refuge

Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

A do­na­tion of white goods has been re­ceived by the Munga Tharndu Maya Women’s Refuge in Roe­bourne from the Pil­bara Mo­tor­cy­cle Sis­ters and Har­vey Nor­man.

Har­vey Nor­man Os­borne Park in Perth do­nated a fridge and wash­ing ma­chine to the Pil­bara Mo­tor­cy­cle Sis­ters who then gave the goods to Mawarnkarra Health Ser­vice’s women’s refuge in Roe­bourne at a morn­ing tea pre­sen­ta­tion last Thurs­day. Mawarnkarra busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager at Monique Wheat­ley is thrilled with the sup­port.

“This fa­cil­ity is ac­tu­ally run at a loss; we don’t get enough fund­ing to meet the op­er­a­tional ex­penses, so any sup­port we can get for the fa­cil­ity is ab­so­lutely wel­comed and were so pleased to get the do­na­tion from Har­vey Nor­man,” she said.

Leah Sc­holes of the Pil­bara Mo­tor­cy­cle Sis­ters said the do­na­tion was a pos­i­tive step in rais­ing aware­ness of women’s is­sues in the com­mu­nity.

“Were out to bring aware­ness to the com­mu­nity that women are out there, we do ride bikes and we like to put a pos­i­tive out­look on what women can achieve and how we can achieve it,” she said.
