Set sail for char­ity

Wanneroo Times - - News -

HEART­FELT con­nec­tions to a char­ity have mo­ti­vated four North Metropoli­tan Tafe stu­dents to plan an event to sup­port Li­on­heart Camp for Kids.

The Joondalup cam­pus team will be stag­ing ‘An­chor Up’, a nautical-themed cock­tail evening, on the Crys­tal Swan on Sun­day, Novem­ber 18, from 3.30pm to 8pm.

The night is to help raise aware­ness and funds for chil­dren and fam­i­lies who at­tend the char­ity’s camps.

Janel Went, Laura Coombes, Mor­gan Cawthorne and Tey­lar Be­g­ley formed Roar­ing Events to stage the fundraiser as part of their diploma of events man­age­ment course.

The team started the se­mes­ter with noth­ing in their bank ac­count, so they had to gain spon­sor­ship and take part in fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to put this event on.

All team mem­bers pre­vi­ously have dealt with los­ing a loved one at a young age and wanted to help chil­dren who were go­ing through the same griev­ing process.

The char­ity holds camps for chil­dren aged five to 12 to help sup­port them and show them how to grieve af­ter the death of a par­ent, pri­mary care­giver or sib­ling.

“I am ex­cited to be on this jour­ney with this amaz­ing team in their last stages of their course and I can’t wait to see this event come to­gether,” Li­on­heart founder Shelly Skin­ner said.
