The latest ‘happenings’ from our Sisters and Brothers in the West

Well, what luck are we having with Bunning’s sausage sizzles!

For those who didn’t make it, the flames were high and the smoke column even higher in the premises across the road from Bunnings so the police advised Bunnings that we were not to start the sausage sizzle.  So some of us came back to Worthy Matrons home (Helen McLachlan’s) for a sausage in a bun.

However, all was not lost.  After a fair bit of phoning around as all charity places appeared to be closed on the weekends, I finally got in touch with Oz Harvest who, although they could not pick up from a private residence, gave us the name of Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren WA Inc.  It’s a registered charity offering support services to grandparents who are raising their grandchildren on a full-time basis.  The founder is Jan Standen who was awarded 2022 Senior Australian of the Year for her role as President of Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren WA Inc.

We took the sausages, buns and onions up to their premises in Warwick this morning and they were very pleased to receive them and us.  They were a delightful bunch of ladies and it was lovely to spend a little time with them and hear about the work they do.
