Yarredi Christmas Appeal – Port Lincoln
As we all know Christmas is fast approaching and while we prepare for the festivities, it’s important to remember that, not everyone gets to enjoy Christmas. In fact, some people can’t celebrate this time at all.
Yarredi Services Inc. at Port Lincoln is a not for profit organisation offering aid and assistance to women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Yarredi was founded in 1979, offering safe accommodation for those escaping violent lives. 36 years on and Yarredi is still providing care for those in desperate need.
These women and children leave their homes with few assets and little money. Yarredi provides them with essential support, counselling, a safe home environment and help to rebuild a safe future.
Many of these women are unable to provide for their children, and don’t have money to buy them gifts at Christmas time. As a result, many children miss out on feeling the joy that comes with giving and receiving to loved ones at this special time of year.
Here, at Beyond Bank Australia, we are big believers in supporting our local communities. We are pleased to offer annual financial support to Yarredi but this year we have decided to go one step further by having a Christmas appeal.
In our local branch at 60 Tasman Terrace, Port Lincoln, we have a big white Christmas tree with a bucket alongside, to collect little gifts for the women and children of Yarredi who have nothing. We invite you to join our Appeal and donate as much or as little as possible.
We want everyone to enjoy this festive season, not just those who are financially able.
We’d love to see you at our branch and thank you in advance for showing your support for this fantastic cause.
You could be the reason for a child’s smile this Christmas.
