Consumer Protection Commissioner Anne Driscoll, WA Chief Scientist Lyn Beazley and WA Governor Malcolm McCusker were special guests at the Ties and Tiaras party, which included a live band, dancing, food, activities and awards.

Six Sarah Potter Awards of cash were given to staff who had shown positive attitudes, grown personally and professionally, contributed to workplace morale, showed interest in others’ welfare and got involved in community activities.

Ten $1000 scholarships were awarded to Year 12 students with a disability from the Ralph Sutton Education Fund to enable them to enter the workforce or further their career aspirations.

The organisation employs more than 250 staff with disabilities in its retail outlets and Canning Vale factory, and works with many more to help them secure employment.
