Centre manager Nigel Haines presented a cheque to charity founder Sue Gillam for $860 in support of Project Seraya.

The funds will go towards purchasing materials required and teams of trades people to build a house for a local villager in Bali.

These projects range from $700-$830 in price and offer a life changing opportunity for those who benefit from it the most.

Money raised was from loose change donations through the charity coin spinner located in the centre.

‘Mandurah shoppers are very generous and it makes me pleased to say I live in Mandurah,’ Mr Haines said.

‘Over the past two years our staff and shoppers have donated more than $27,000 to local groups and charities.

‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and staff who generously give their money to these worthwhile causes.’

Mitch Gillam was killed in Bali in December 2010 when he was 20 years old.

His family and friends work tirelessly initiating, developing and expanding A Mitch Gillam Project.

The projects are designed to improve the living conditions of those desperately poor people in Seraya, eastern Bali, who struggle every day to secure the necessities of life.
