BAYSWA­TER Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Centre (BLAC) was among more than 35 cen­tres across WA that cel­e­brated an an­nual fundraiser for a chil­dren’s char­ity on November 5.

The centre held par­ent races, tug-owars and a bar­be­cue to raise funds for Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion’s Artist in Res­i­dence pro­gram, which of­fers ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren be­ing cared for at the hos­pi­tal.

Foun­da­tion mas­cot Stitches the Bear made a spe­cial ap­pear­ance.

BLAC chair­man Evan Crute said the com­mu­nity event was a main fea­ture of the centre’s events cal­en­dar.

Lit­tle Ath­let­ics WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Vince Del Prete said Lit­tle Ath­let­ics WA had been sup­port­ing the foun­da­tion since 1998 and do­nated more than $250,000 over the years.

“Cen­tres like Bayswa­ter LAC do a great job in sup­port­ing the Foun­da­tion, with them be­ing the Centre that has raised the most money for the last six years,” he said.

“Our an­nual fundraiser day is a fan­tas­tic ac­tiv­ity which brings fam­i­lies and our com­mu­nity to­gether and helps build the spirit and cul­ture of our clubs.”

The funds will be pre­sented at the Lit­tle Ath­let­ics WA Re­lay Fes­ti­val on De­cem­ber 11 at WA Ath­let­ics Sta­dium.
