Snags to the rescue

• Mt Lawley MP Simon Millman was in his formal suit, but all the kids at Marjorie Mann Lawley Day Care Centre were flannelled-up for this farm fundraiser.

WHEN the kids at Marjorie Mann Lawley Day Care Centre heard about the plight of drought-stricken farmers they decided to help.

The centre’s early childhood teacher Rebekah Lewis-Smith said the children were “upset to hear about the drought and the impact it had on farmers.

“After a group discussion they decided they wanted to hold a sausage sizzle to raise funds to make the farmers happy.”

Nearby businesses including Vince Garreffa from Mondo Butchers chipped in to sponsor their Farmers Wishing Well Day, and they sent all the proceeds to Drought Angels.

Mt Lawley MP Simon Millman dropped by the Clifton Crescent centre to make a contribution and said “this is such a lovely gesture from kids in our local community.

“Thank you to the parents, local businesses and most importantly, the kids, for their generosity”.

Ms Lewis-Smith says “part of the philosophy of the centre is to make better citizens–we wanted to support the kids with this amazing idea so they know they can make a difference to people in need”.
