Lifelink

'Seek Justice' Event for Term 2: Lifelink

In our own city of Perth, many individuals suffer from poverty, homelessness, disability, lack of education, being in a minority group or other disadvantage. Lifelink agencies deliver professional services and caring support to over 30,000 people in need throughout Western Australia each year. The work of Lifelink is a positive demonstration of Faith in Action.

This year the College Lifelink Appeal takes place 24th - 28th June. Next week, the Year 11 students will plan the week and will be lucky enough to have visitors from 'The Shopfront' speaking to them.

Secondary students will be asked to bring in coins for Lifelink Organisation as well as 'hamper' items for The Shopfront in Maylands. Sample items: tinned foods, breakfast cereals, toiletries, new underwear, 'green' shopping bags. Primary will be having a 'Wacky Dress' fundraising day.
