Wise legacy honoured
MEMORIAL IN NIKKI’S NAME
A MEMORIAL garden around the Sutton Street Hall established by the City of Mandurah and launched on Friday honours the legacy of community champion Nikki Wise.
Mrs Wise, who died after a motorcycle accident in 2016, ran the Reach-Out Drop-In Centre at the hall and supported the community by supplying meals for street people and those in need and a shoulder to lean on.
The quiet achiever identified a gap in services and took it on herself to fill that gap and her dedication and tireless efforts led to her being a muchloved member of the community.
She left a big hole in the community and was recognised for her selfless work when named posthumously as joint winner of the 2017 Community Citizen of the Year.
The Nikki Wise Community Services Memorial Scholarship was launched in April to help passionate members of the local community wishing to study in the area of community services.
