Yarredi Services community grant – ‘We couldn’t have done it without you!’

Congratulations to the latest recipients of one of our community grants in  in Port Lincoln – Yarredi Services. We received the following note from their Executive Officer Sharyn, thanking us for the $12,000 grant.

Yarredi Services provides a really important and safe environment for women and children fleeing violent homes.

We have crisis accommodation for four families and we also run children’s wellbeing programmes over the year.

It’s a vital service in the community and some of our facilities were really needing “refreshing” especially the outdoor children’s play area.

We began the process of applying for funding and that’s how we got in touch with Beyond Bank who were extremely supportive.

The grant of more than $13,000 will transform our centre.

Volunteers have already cleared away old gravel, plants and concrete which was stark and so hot and glary in summer.

Now the landscapers will be in to lay the turf and just the colour green is going to make it instantly more inviting. It will make such a difference and so much better for our clients.

At Yarredi, it is so important that the women and children who come here feel valued and respected.

This renovation is going to make such a difference and it should be finished in the next fortnight.

Before and after photos to come – we can’t wait to share them.

Thanks Beyond Bank.. what a difference you’ve made.
