Fremantle Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A COM­MU­NITY fair will take over Man­ning Park next week­end to raise funds for Aus­tralia’s drought-af­fected farm­ers.

The Com­mu­nity Fair Fundraiser for Drought Relief will put the fun into fundrais­ing, with a range of fam­ily-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties to en­joy in­clud­ing gi­ant games and in­flat­a­bles, face paint­ing, slot car rac­ing, en­ter­tain­ment, work­shops and demos from United Mar­tial Arts and the South Coogee Bush Fire Bri­gade.

The fair has been or­gan­ised un­der Cen­tre­point Church Bi­bra Lake’s Be­yond the Walls pro­gram, where mem­bers en­deav­our to run events or of­fer ser­vices for the com­mu­nity.

Cen­tre­point Church Bi­bra Lake cam­pus di­rec­tor Sofia Gib­bons said Aus­tralians had a spirit of help­ing each other out.

“It’s a way for fam­i­lies to get in­volved in our lo­cal com­mu­nity, meet new friends and have a lot of fun, all while know­ing they are sup­port­ing a great cause,” she said.

“As in­di­vid­u­als we can only do so much, but when we come to­gether as a team, we can achieve so much more.

“The thing about com­mu­nity is that we’re in this to­gether and we need to be there for each other, whether it be shar­ing highs or help­ing each other out when things get tough.”

The event will take place on Oc­to­ber 6 at Man­ning Park’s Alan Thomas Mu­sic Shell from 1pm to 5pm.
