Over 130 MRBTA members and partners joined forces to raise $3,000 for Wheelchairs for Kids, a national charity that provides wheelchairs for children in Australia and around the world. In many cases, wheelchair recipients have never previously experienced mobility or sitting in an upright posture. A team of volunteers based locally in the Margaret River Region support the work of the charity by handmaking lap blankets and toys for wheelchair users. Donations collected through the Mingle Jingle event are equivalent to the charity being able to build 11 new children’s wheelchairs.
We would like to say a huge thanks to the door prize sponsors that allowed us to put together some incredible hampers that were distributed on the night. Sponsors include:
We look forward to seeing you at our events in 2023!
