CRC FUNDING REINSTATED
The State Government has announced that the funding to WA Community Resource Centres will be reinstated in full to the tune of $13 million per year. This is a welcomed decision after months of uncertainty for the Network and regional communities who were facing a 40% annual cut.

Thank you for supporting your CRC!
A big thank you to those who wrote letters of support, sent postcards and displayed our bumper stickers. The outpouring of support received by the network was incredible, and surely helped the state government come to this decision.

PURPLE BRA DAY
Purple Bra Day is a fundraising initiative of Breast Cancer Care WA which provides personalised support to women, men and their families affected by breast cancer. In 2017, over 1,000 people were assisted by the organisation, in the way of counselling appointments, helping with the weekly cleaning services, dropping patients to and from medical appointments, helping to pay household bills, support from Breast Care Nurses and so much more.
With IGA and Bendigo Bank being corporate partners of Purple Bra Day, the two local Boyup Brook businesses collaborated to support the campaign.
Boyup Brook IGA generously donated and created almost ninety tasty lunchboxes which were purchased for $10 each. IGA also donated two hampers for a raffle. The Bendigo Bank Agency / Community Resource Centre undertook the event’s promotion and manned the raffle and collection tins on June 22. Congratulations to Geordie Wells and John Boyland who were the lucky winners of the hampers.
All of the activities raised a total of $1466.05.
Bendigo Bank Agency and CRC Manager, Jodi Nield said, “It was a fantastic community effort. Breast cancer has touched so many people in our community in one way or another, so it is quite humbling to have raised such a substantial amount for this worthy cause.”
