Last year, I had the privilege working with Walk a While, and organisation focussed on empowering Indigenous Australians to embrace their creativity. Along with founder, Ken Duncan OAM, we travelled Haast Bluff to spend time with the community helping to develop a recording studio and local creative arts community hub. Now, we are reaching out to the Carey community for donations of warm winter blankets and jumpers.
We are organising a shipment of winter clothing and blankets to go out to central Australia. While the desert days are warm all year, winter nights in the desert can be bitterly cold. You can help by sending your clean, second-hand winter clothing and blankets to become part of this shipment. Or maybe you would like to purchase some inexpensive new items. Our Indigenous communities don’t have access to many of the things we city folk take for granted – including discount department stores where they can buy reasonably priced clothing. The photo below shows how pleased the families were with our shipment last year.
If you are able to donate any clean clothes or blankets, please bring them in to Rev. Bramley’s office on or before Tuesday 23 June and I will organise their shipping. Alternatively you can send them directly to the Ken Duncan Gallery, 414 The Entrance Road, Erina Heights NSW 2260 by Tuesday 30 June.
Monetary donations to Walk a While are also greatly appreciated. These funds go to help . You can donate on their website.
Thanks and blessings from the Walk a While Board, Ken Duncan OAM and from me, Mrs Singleton.
