Refuge re­freshed

Wanneroo Weekender - - Front Page -

A north­ern sub­urbs refuge has had a facelift to cre­ate a vi­brant en­vi­ron­ment where chil­dren feel safe.

THE grounds of Pa­tri­cia Giles Cen­tre were given a tidy up as part of a re­cent com­mu­nity day.

About 20 Lendlease em­ploy­ees vis­ited the north­ern sub­urbs fam­ily do­mes­tic vi­o­lence refuge to re­paint walls, re­vamp gar­den beds, paint a bas­ket­ball court and clean.

They also cre­ated a mu­ral to add colour and vi­brancy to the chil­dren’s play­ground area.

“To some peo­ple the idea of a refuge is com­pletely dif­fer­ent to what they ex­pe­ri­ence when com­ing to Pa­tri­cia Giles Cen­tre,” man­ager Lor­raine Kelly said.

“It is price­less see­ing the faces of fam­i­lies when they walk into our grounds and are wel­comed by a clean, safe en­vi­ron­ment where the kids are com­fort­able and happy.”

Now in its 23rd year, Lendlease’s Com­mu­nity Day en­ables em­ploy­ees to make a dif­fer­ence.
