MIRRABOOKA residents can send heartfelt messages to people who have breast cancer as part of a ‘Wishmas’ Trees appeal.

The Square Mirrabooka and charity Breast Cancer Care WA (BCCWA) launched the appeal at a morning tea event on November 30.

The messages will be written on decorations and displayed on the centre’s Christmas trees before being delivered to BCCWA clients, supporters and volunteers.

Centre manager Shane McLean said Christmas could be a difficult time of the year for many people experiencing breast cancer.

“When we came up with the idea of the Wishmas trees, we thought it was a lovely idea to enable the community to show that they care about their friends and neighbours going through difficult times over the festive period,” he said.

BCCWA chief executive Zoe McAlpine said families would no doubt be extremely touched when they read all of the messages.

Customers can also donate to BCCWA’s clients via the pre-|allocated gift vouchers sold by BCCWA volunteers or from a ‘tap and go’ machine placed at the centre.

A gift wrapping station will collect gold coin donations for BCCWA.
