Charity given two new cars HOW YOU CAN HELP
STARICK has some new wheels to get their services on the road.
Ascot Rotary Club has donated two cars to the Cloverdale charity, which supports women and children in Perth’s south-east metropolitan area experiencing family and domestic violence.
The charity operates two refuges for women and children, as well as outreach programs, and has helped close to 1000 families this year alone.
Starick CEO Leanne Barron said the donation meant the organisation could keep delivering critical services.
“The vehicles will be used by our staff to provide outreach services to victims of ■ Volunteer at their op shop ■ Become a regular donor ■ Support the Christmas program with hampers or vouchers for family activities like the movies or Adventure World ■ Hold a fundraising event Head to starick.org.au for more information.
domestic and family violence,” she said.
“It means they can visit women in their homes and drive women and children to essential appointments.”
Starick will also use the cars to pick up and deliver donations to those in need.
“The partnership between Starick and Ascot Rotary is just over a year old. They’ve been very generous to us,” Ms Barron said.
“In addition to providing two vehicles, they have also provided hampers for our clients at Christmas time.”
International director Mike Bermann said the club first became involved with Starick after two members of the organisation spoke at one of their meetings.
“As a Rotary club, we are always looking for local organisations that require some funding to help people in our area less fortunate than us,” he said.
