Bushfire Response in Our Community

Published: Tuesday, 7 January 2020 at 4:44:49 PM

The response from community members, local businesses, community groups and organisations has been simply amazing.

We are seeing children fundraising through lemonade stalls and cake bakes, so many local businesses donating their proceeds, people coming together to make items for injured and orphaned wildlife and a generosity of personal donations that will have an impact on recovery and support efforts.

The City of Vincent is currently supporting the Perth Mosque to organise an inclusive cultural community gathering at Hyde Park - Perth Unites for Bushfire Relief - on Monday 27th January, and we would love for our Vincent community to take part.

The fundraiser is being organised in collaboration with Man Up, Haka for Life, Sisterhood Empowerment, Buddhist Society of WA, Corroboree for Life and Uniting Church. It will include food stalls, cultural performances and children’s activities, with more details to come.

The City of Vincent is providing in kind support for the Perth Unites for Bushfire Relief event and we are keen to provide support for community fundraising efforts in Vincent facilities and parks with in kind support, waiving of fees and promotion wherever we can.

For more information, please email community.partnerships@vincent.wa.gov.au or call 9275 6000 or pop into the Library or Administration Centre for a chat.

Thank you to the Vincent community for your generous spirit and care at such a challenging time for Australia. The depth of support is deeply touching.

Best wishes,

Emma Cole, Mayor
