VOLUNTEERS united on Friday to help a Coodanup resident clean her home.

The City of Mandurah’s health services had issued a notice to the resident to clean up the property.

Eleven volunteers worked from the early morning cleaning inside and outside the home and tended to both plumbing and electrical issues.

Local businesses including Solomon’s Carpets Rockingham, Vella Plumbing and Gas fitting and Cleanaway donated their services for the day.

Mandurah Lock and Key also donated $100 towards cleaning products.

Councillor Dave Schumacher said it was humbling to see people coming together to help others.

“The resident in need is the type of person who volunteers their time helping others but never asks for help herself,” he said, adding that the community had come together to assist somebody who needed and deserved the help.
