Soroptimist International Bunbury donated $2000 to the Bunbury Multicultural Group on Friday, which will use the money to support the group’s Driving to Make a Difference project.

Bunbury Multicultural Group president Shamara Williams said she was grateful for the donation.

“The project that we have accepted this money for, with huge thanks, is for the Driving to Make a Difference project and that is providing driving lessons for women from a cultural and diverse background,” Mrs Williams said.

“We find that many migrant women are isolated because they don't have the skills to drive here, they may have driven in their countries but here some can’t afford lessons or the test, so they tend to just be cut off from services and engaging with the community, so we see this as a really important project.
