EAST Perth’s Tranby Centre has celebrated its Noongar clients and their culture as part of Naidoc Week.

The centre held an art workshop on belonging and community on Tuesday with another planned for Thursday.

Today a Belmont based business provided enough kangaroo stew to serve about 200 people throughout the morning, using about 10kgs of kangaroo meat.

Daniel Cowley from Site Service Holdings, which also catered for the traditional Christmas lunch last year, said the team was happy to lend a hand whenever Uniting CareWest reached out.

Today’s feed was followed by a screening of A Team of Champions, a series of documentaries profiling the lives and sporting achievements of 24 Noongar footballers to play AFL Football, presented by Ernie Dingo.
