Fundraising for sick or disadvantaged kids in Gero
A Geraldton girl with mobility issues has recently had her house fitted with a walk-in bath so her mother no longer needs to lift her into the tub to be bathed.
The donated bathroom modifications have allowed the mum to supervise her child from another room with an iPad, giving her some reprieve during bath time.
Good friends Sandra Watt and Wendy Norris said it was making this kind of differences that motivated them to volunteer for Variety, a charity for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
The two friends, who are both on the Variety Mid West board, will hold a high tea fundraiser next month to raise more money for families in need of some reprieve of their own.
“We’re after as much as we can get out of people,” Ms Norris said.
“This is a great cause.”
The high tea fundraiser will be held at Geraldton Yacht Club on November 16 from 1.30pm.
To book a seat, contact Wendy Norris on 0429 884 403 or Sandra Watt on 0427 853 130.
