I CONGRATULATE Curtin University community for recently staging a very successful Relay For Life, which raised an incredible $80,000. The proceeds will fund valuable support services, along with important research and prevention programs.
This is the third time Relay for Life Curtin University has been held and the 25 members of the organising committee did an outstanding job in putting it together and generating twice as many team registrations compared to the previous year.
More than 500 individuals participated in the 24-hour event, including 40 volunteers, 25 survivors, 20 carers and 48 teams, with a special mention to Team Josh who topped the fundraising ladder with their $8000 effort.
Talk about man’s best friend. Como resident Derek Large was down at Deep Water Point a few weeks ago when he took a lovely photo of what he thought was a guy and a girl. It wasn’t until he looked closer he realised it was a guy with a dog. Have a photo to share? Send it to southerngazette@ communitynews.com.au SUE DOHERTY, Mayor, City of South Perth.
