City of Wanneroo golf day drives $40,000 towards YouthCARE chaplains

THE City of Wanneroo’s annual corporate charity golf day drove $40,000 towards chaplaincy services for public secondary schools.

The October 18 event at Carramar Golf Course attracted 30 teams and raised funds for YouthCARE.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the annual event had raised $628,000 over the years.

“YouthCARE offers social, emotional and spiritual support to thousands of students, staff and family members in school communities each year,” she said.

“Students from Butler College, Mindarie Senior College, Clarkson Community High School, Wanneroo Secondary College, Girrawheen Senior High School and Yanchep Secondary College can all access this program.

“Chaplaincy programs provide pastoral care in a trusting environment to school children to help them navigate their way through life challenges.

“It is an important service that parents, teachers and children rely on.”

YouthCARE has helping young people feel encouraged and empowered to achieve their best at school, create positive relationships and contribute to their community for 46 years.

Collie Carols in the Park

The annual YouthCARE carols by candlelight were held in Collie’s Central Park at the Bendigo Bank Music Shell on Sunday night, December 9.

The Collie YouthCARE support team will be holding it's annual Carols and sausage sizzle event on Sunday December, 9. 

The yearly event sees the community come together for a night filled of fun and Christmas-inspired performances.

All community members are welcome and encouraged to attend - watch and listen to the children singing, or playing an instrument, celebrating the season of Christmas, while enjoying a cool drink, sausage in a bun, and waving a candle.

All local schools including the Collie Senior High School orchestra will be taking part in the event.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Collie YouthCARE Council that supports keeping chaplains in all of Collie’s schools. 

By purchasing any sausage in a bun, bacon and egg burger, veggie burger, or a drink you will be helping keep local schools staffed with chaplains.

The Collie YouthCARE support team said they are incredibly thankful to all the local businesses and volunteers, including all the local church denominations for their support throughout the year and they would not survive without their help.

The sizzle starts at 5pm, with the concert starting at 6pm in Central Park, at the Bendigo Bank Music Shell.
