Chorus raises voice in support
BURNS Beach-based Indian Blue Chorus celebrated its fifth anniversary with a charity drive.
The School Packs Project group puts together school stationery packs for children who are living in refuges because of domestic violence.
Indian Blue Chorus has selected a new charity to support on its anniversary over the past five years.
Previous recipients have included the Patricia Giles Centre and Grandparents Raising Grandchildren WA.
“As Indian Blue Chorus approached its fifth birthday, we wanted to focus on an organisation to encompass the needs of all schoolaged children,” team coordinator Helen Bolton said.
“The Perth mums – Fiona and Pam – behind the School Packs Project are aspiring to put together 500 stationery packs for the hundreds of children in WA family refuges escaping domestic violence.
“Our donation kickstarted the 2018 campaign, with more than 10 per cent of completed school packs for both primary and secondary schoolchildren being gifted.”
Members of the community can also support the School Packs Project by donating new stationery items during September at the Duncraig, Joondalup, Whitford and Woodvale libraries.
The Indian Blue Chorus always welcomes new members, with several upcoming community events including a festive tour to local community centres, retirement villages, agedcare facilities and shopping centres on December 1.
Weekly rehearsals will start October 23 and are every Tuesday from 7.15pm at Bramston Park Community Centre. Visit www. indianbluechorus.info.
