All profits from the rummage will assist the WLSQ in continuing to provide vital and life-changing support to women and children escaping domestic violence. WLSQ CEO Angela Lynch hopes to see a good turnout at the event and strong support for the cause. ‘’Many women want to know how they can uplift other women in the community. Supporting the WLSQ Rummage is a direct opportunity to effect change to the lives of survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence,” she said. Angela encourages everyone to spring clean their wardrobe and donate shoes, dresses, handbags, pants and any other items of clothing which are no longer needed.
WLSQ currently provides 25,000 services to some of the most vulnerable in our community. The free information, legal advice and social welfare services provided allow women and children to live their lives free from fear and violence. Due to constraints on resources, 40 per cent of calls to the statewide domestic violence helpline are left unanswered. This rummage provides an opportunity to help raise the much-needed funds necessary to meet the sadly increasing demands for the service.
With 29,000 people currently interested in attending the event, every pre-loved donation makes a difference to the women and children in need. Entry to the event is by gold coin donation, and all items on sale will be just $5.
