FOR the fourth year, Ravenswood Early Learning supported Yarloop Fire Station through fundraising for National Red Balloon Day.

More than 25 children at the centre were visited by Yarloop fireman Robert Phyllis.

He spoke to them about fire safety and told them what to do in a fire.

Centre spokeswoman Sheryl Jones said they had raised $800 so far for Yarloop.

The centre still has unique “thank you fireys” bibs, nappy covers and dummy clips for sale, which should add to the total, she said.

“It’s always been important to support the fireys.

“But with the fires going through there last year and the devastation it’s even more important.”
