Foun­da­tion finds home

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Street Watch -

THE Wir­rpanda Foun­da­tion has re­ceived a grant of $2 mil­lion from Lot­tery­west to as­sist in the con­struc­tion of its new head of­fice in Lathlain.

Lo­cated along­side the West Coast Ea­gles Football Club, the build­ing is part of the Lathlain precinct re­de­vel­op­ment project and will pro­vide a new pur­pose-built fa­cil­ity to sup­port core ad­min­is­tra­tion fa­cil­i­ties and in­clude cul­tur­ally com­ple­men­tary land­scaped gar­dens and an am­phithe­atre.

Wir­rpanda Foun­da­tion di­rec­tor David Wir­rpanda said the an­nounce­ment of the Lot­tery­west fund­ing was an im­por­tant step for­ward for the foun­da­tion.

“The foun­da­tion opened its doors in 2005 and has since been housed in a num­ber of tem­po­rary lo­ca­tions,” he said.

“The fund­ing is ex­cit­ing as it helps to pro­vide us with a per­ma­nent home to en­sure we can con­tinue to de­liver our pro­grams and work in the com­mu­nity.”
