Se­cond­hand can­cer help

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

A TRAIL of se­cond­hand dona­tions is needed be­fore the Cottes­loe Coun­cil and Can­cer Sup­port WA-sup­ported Well­ness Won­der Sale at the Can­cer Well­ness Cen­tre next month.

“The idea of re­cy­cling cloth­ing and house­hold goods to a new home is a great form of sus­tain­abil­ity,” Cottes­loe Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

The event is part of the 2010-es­tab­lished Garage Sale Trail sup­ported by more than 150 coun­cils across Aus­tralia to en­cour­age reusing the un­wanted, bring communities to­gether and iden­tify il­le­gal dump­ing.

“Another way to show your sup­port is by do­nat­ing un­wanted items in­clud­ing books, clothes, toys and ‘bric-a-brac’ in good con­di­tion, to Can­cer Sup­port WA, who will sell them at their stall in the cen­tre’s carpark at the sale,” Ms Dawkins said.

For $20, res­i­dents and com­mu­nity groups can also have stalls at the sale to raise finds for Can­cer Sup­port WA.

“We’re not gov­ern­ment funded, and we have re­lied heav­ily on com­mu­nity con­tri­bu­tions while we have been here for 32 years,” Can­cer Sup­port WA client ser­vices man­ager Carol Moates said.

Live entertainment and food will also be pro­vided at the sale at 80 Rail­way Street, Cottes­loe, 9am-1pm on Sat­ur­day, October 22.

To book a stall call 9285 5000.
