Hit the wall for char­ity

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS - Pic­ture: Jon Hew­son

IT will be easy to do­nate to favourite char­i­ties since Halls Head Cen­tral launched its char­ity do­na­tion wall last week.

The char­ity wall can be found be­tween Baker’s De­light and San­ity and pro­vides a col­lec­tion point for cus­tomers to do­nate much-needed sup­plies to dif­fer­ent lo­cal char­ity groups.

The wall kicked off last week rais­ing money for K9 An­i­mal Res­cue Group and un­til the end of June cus­tomers can do­nate canned and dry food, toys, blan­kets and treats for K9 dogs.

Three of K9’s furry friends – China, Kenta and Jaala – were on hand to help launch the do­na­tion wall. Back: Ja­son Rose and Taryne McDon­ald.

Man­durah and Peel Tourism Or­gan­i­sa­tion (MAPTO) re­cently hosted mem­bers of Cad­die to show them first-hand why the re­gion is known as WA’s Golf Coast.

As part of their visit, the golf­ing ex­perts played The Cut, Meadow Springs Golf and Coun­try Club and Se­cret Har­bour Golf Links.

Their ex­pe­ri­ences will fea­ture in the up­com­ing edi­tion.

MAPTO chief ex­ec­u­tive Karen Priest said the project was part of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s golf tourism strat­egy.

“With an abun­dance of chal­leng­ing and beau­ti­ful golf courses in a per­fect cli­mate, golf is a great draw­card for vis­i­tors to the Peel re­gion from our key tourism mar­kets,” Ms Priest said.

As part of the golf mar­ket­ing strat­egy, MAPTO has formed part­ner­ships with most of the re­gion’s golf courses, which have con­trib­uted funds for in­creased golf mar­ket­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

MAPTO was also in­stru­men­tal in hav­ing the Peel re­gion golf courses recog­nised by Great Golf Courses of Aus­tralia. IF you have a quirky or in­ter­est­ing tale to tell, call 95831070 or email jill.burgess@com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au
