WA Mums Cottage, a drop-in-centre in Mandurah for women, will be busy installing new shelving after receiving the news they had been chosen by P&N members for a quarterly donation of $1000 through the bank’s Helping &nds grants program.
Kaye Seeber, who set up WA Mums Cottage in Mandurah late last year, said that in the past six months the number of mums looking for respite had gone from eight per month to more than 30 per month.
“It’s a safe place, like Grandma’s house, to have a cup of tea while the kids play in the garden,” said Kaye.
“With the explosion of family and domestic violence in this State, the numbers are only going to continue to increase, and more and more demand will be placed on drop-in-centres such as WA Mums Cottage, which is why we are so grateful to P&N Bank for their assistance.”
P&N Mandurah Branch Manager Elaine Carus said the bank was delighted to be able to help Kaye and all the volunteers from the WA Mums Cottage on behalf of P&N’s members.
“The team at WA Mums Cottage do a fantastic job and it’s very rewarding for us to have the opportunity to support a not-for-profit organisation to which Kaye and her team dedicates so much of their free time,” she said.
