Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Belmont -

BORO­NIA Pre-re­lease Cen­tre for Women in Bent­ley do­nated funds raised through its an­nual Gala Day to Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion WA’s ‘Let’s Drive’ pro­gram.

The $14,765 fund­ing will pro­vide driver train­ing for 20 stu­dents at Lock­ridge Se­nior High School.
