Grab a cuppa for a good cause
A Devonshire morning tea will be enjoyed to help raise funds for YouthCARE at its annual garden party this Friday.
An $8 donation on entry will support chaplaincy programs at a number of schools across the South West, including Bunbury Senior High School and Eaton Primary School.
Jim Cunniffe has been supporting the program for more than 20 years and will host the event with his wife, Flo Cunniffe, in their manicured garden at 15 Kelly Street, Carey Park.
“Fundraising in the sense of coming to a garden party is very pleasant, everyone can come along for a tea and a chat in a lovely setting to enjoy supporting a good cause,” he said.
School chaplains deal with a wide range of important issues by offering supportive and non-judgmental advice to students in need.
“The youth of today need a moralistic mentor to help them face the harshness of life that kids in schools face,” Mr Cunniffe said.
“What you hear they go through just makes you want to go and give them a hug.” The morning tea begins at 10am and will feature entertainment, a bring-and-buy stall and the opportunity to purchase plants from the garden.
