SAFE carers wrap up year
About 50 people attended animal rescue organisation Saving Animals From Euthanasia’s end of year Christmas party on Sunday, November 20.
Guests enjoyed food, drinks, games, mingling and music from foster carer and local musician Brad Colbert.
SAFE founder Sue Hedley said the Christmas celebration was a good opportunity to thank volunteers, foster carers, sponsors, rangers, the local vet and the City of Karratha, who have been involved with the organisation throughout the year.
“It was a golden opportunity for people who never get to meet each other to find out who all the other SAFE people are in town,” she said.
Ms Hedley said 2016 had been an “amazing” year for the group.
“A highlight would be employing Anne Boxhall as our executive officer, who has taken SAFE to a higher level as a sustainable, professional organisation,” she said.
“We also employed excellent staff . . . who are capable of taking SAFE to where we need to be both locally and across the State.”
The party, organised by SAFE’s Roimata Wrigley, enjoyed donations from Scope Business Imaging, Sealanes, New Wave Catering, Parry’s Merchants, Bakers Delight and Empire 6714.
