Artists serve up fundraiser

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

THE Zonta Club of Perth North­ern Sub­urbs is auc­tion­ing uniquely painted and dec­o­rated wooden trays to raise money for the Pa­tri­cia Giles Cen­tre.

The auc­tion will be at The Boule­vard Cen­tre, Floreat on Satur­day, Novem­ber 26, from 2pm and fol­lows the In­ter­na­tional Day for the Elim­i­na­tion of Vi­o­lence against Women, which is recog­nised the pre­vi­ous day.

Money raised will help the Pa­tri­cia Giles Cen­tre con­tinue its Camps pro­gram that pro­vides coun­selling, ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port to women and their chil­dren who have wit­nessed and/or ex­pe­ri­enced fam­ily vi­o­lence.

Shirley Win­stan­ley, who has dec­o­rated one of the trays, said she had painted an im­age of chil­dren on a beach for her sis­ter, who spent six months in hos­pi­tal.

“She en­joyed us­ing the tray ev­ery day and so I thought the same happy im­age might also be of in­ter­est to some­one at the auc­tion,” she said.

The Zonta Club of Perth North­ern Sub­urbs meets on the first Wed­nes­day of the month at Ren­dezvous, Scar­bor­ough.
