Save the Children volunteers host morning tea at The Square in Mirrabooka

VOLUNTEERS from a Mirrabooka pop-up book shop hosted a morning tea event for mums, special guests and customers last month.

Not-for-profit organisation Save the Children opened the shop at The Square Mirrabooka in June, where people could buy second-hand books with proceeds going to the organisation.

The shop held a morning tea event to engage with the community just two months after its opening.

Save the Children chief executive Paul Ronalds addressed 45 people about new initiatives the organisation were committed to doing.

Save the Children WA community fundraising manager Sonia Holmes said the book shop planned on continuing its story time sessions for children and hold them everyday during school holidays.

“We are planning to engage together with (The Square Mirrabooka) centre management and Dismantle WA to keep the mentor program running and to handover bikes to disadvantaged children in the next few weeks,” she said.

“We plan to lift our profile and embrace the community more whenever we can.”
