Thinking caps on to raise funds
The Karratha United Community put the fun into fundraising for charity last Saturday night, with a Trivia Night at the All Seasons Sports Bar.
About 170 people put their thinking caps on to help raise money for a local not-for-profit organisation, Pilbara and Kimberley Care.
Pilbara and Kimberley Care provide a variety of services to the community including domestic assistance, social support, home nursing, transportation and respite care.
Professor Paul Skerritt from the Southern Cross Care Board who looks after the Pilbara and Kimberley Care said the Trivia Night was a wonderful idea.
“Just because something is not-for-profit, doesn’t mean it can’t make a loss,” he said.
“It does require money to run the service and it is really grateful that the United Community have decided to support the Pilbara and Kimberley Care as it is a worthy cause.”
Karratha United Community branch manager, Amanda Letcher, said that by raising funds for PKC, they are able to improve their service that they provide to the community.
The United Community were hoping to raise between $10,000 – $15,000.
When Pilbara Echo went to print, United Community had raised $13,900.
