Donations a boon for refuge
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.
