The Marninwarntikura Women's Resource Centre are calling out for clean, good quality donations of clothing for women, men and children. Primarily celebrating the hard-working grandmothers in the Fitzroy Valley; families and communities in the remote Kimberley Region of WA, the original goal is to reach 1000 dresses in the next 12 months to gift away. All quality donations are appreciated to help them reach this goal. The poster below says it all, or you can view it in the form of a fact sheet here.

Due to 'Covid kilos', I have increased in clothing size!

I will 'spring clean' my wardrobe and donate to the Grandmothers. I am happy to pay the postage of the parcel.

Fitzroy Crossing is a place I visited a few years ago. This community needs our help.

This is a great opportunity to donate clothing and items to the Grandmothers. It is an excellent initiative by their community.
