Grill'd Local Matters
In February this year the KKS Project Officer entered the Grill’d Local Matters community appeal to give the KKS project a chance at winning a share of $500. In March, the Project Officer heard back from Grill’d and found out that the application was successful! Grill'd announced that the KKS project will be given $300.
It just goes to show how many people in the community are seeing violence against women and children as a major social issue that needs to be addressed. With domestic and family violence being on the national agenda now with the naming of the amazingly strong and courageous Rosie Batty as Australian of the Year 2015, the community is more aware about the issue than ever. Thank you to Grill’d for giving back to the community and helping us raise awareness about domestic and family violence!
Jumbo Video Store
The Jumbo Video store on Canning Highway in Bicton is closing its doors after years of business. The Project Officer received a telephone call from one of the staff members at the store and was asked if the Women’s Council would like to have the DVDs. We accepted the kind offer, and the staff member came to West Perth to deliver the DVDs. There were seven boxes in total full of DVDs for both children and women.
Six boxes contained children’s shows and movies, while the other box had DVDs for women about fitness, cooking, travel, and much more…
The DVDs have been collected by some of the Refuges who responded to the group email sent by our admin, and the rest of the DVDS were taken to the previous Child Advocate meeting held at Harmony Place on 24th June 2015.
Each person eating at the Grill'd Subiaco store was given one of these envelopes with a token inside. The most tokens in the jar meant that the Keeping Kids Safe project won $300!
