REMOVAL of a Clarkson sales office is set to benefit community groups in the northern suburbs.

With the Catalina central sales office closing to make way for another at Catalina Beach in Mindarie, Satterley and Tamala Park Regional Council decided to donate some of the equipment to community groups.

The playground equipment and two park benches were removed and donated to the Patricia Giles Centre, with LD TOTAL relocating the equipment.

The centre offers safe crisis accommodation and counselling for women and children affected by domestic violence.

Garden beds, picnic tables and a shed will go to the Quinns Community Men’s Shed, which will use it to grow produce in a community garden at The Salvation Army’s vacant land in Merriwa.

The charity supports 150 to 200 families in the area and harvest from the garden will be distributed to those charity recipients.

“We are delighted to be able to donate the equipment to such worthy local community groups who can repurpose and reuse it,” Satterley Property Group project director Carl Buckley said.

“We would like to thank LD TOTAL and the Quinns mens shed for their time and effort in helping move and set up the equipment at their new homes.”

Catalina is being developed by the Tamala Park Regional Council, which includes the cities of Joondalup, Perth, Stirling, Vincent and Wanneroo and the towns of Cambridge and Victoria Park.
