Skaters are encouraged to dress up as characters from hell by wearing devil horns and anything red and black with the theme for the evening ‘sell your soul to roller derby’.

SCDD league president Melissa O’Hara, known as Princess Mosh on the track, said there would be raffles and plenty of games and prizes to be won on the night.

Money raised will go towards the SCDD social justice program which helps support the local community and raise awareness of important issues.

Ms O’Hara said this month SCDD would support Global Good Foundation (GGF) and its Minute of Noise program that lets children and young people know it is okay to speak out about domestic violence.

‘We are also raising funds so that we can donate food packages to the Perth mobile bus service as well as hygiene kits,’ she said.

‘We like to target areas that often are forgotten or have low awareness such as the youth that are touched by domestic violence, hence our decision to support youth in a way that will provide sustainable skills and allow them to meet others touched by domestic violence.

‘SCDD members not only feel strongly about contributing to the recovery of domestic violence but some of our skaters have been touched by domestic violence both personally, through family and friends, and professionally.’

The SCDD founder encouraged everyone to get down to the event and raise money for a good cause while getting an insight into roller derby with the chance to join the league for either competition or recreation.
