About 85 residents from the suburb’s two RAAFA estates attended the high morning tea at Cambrai Village.

Convenor Carol Horrocks said guest speaker Julie Marsh was a highlight, enthusiastically giving an ‘informative’ and ‘thought-provoking’ talk.

‘Her address covered mainly the overall wellness of the pregnant mother having such effect on the unborn child and what part the environment plays in this,’ Mrs Horrocks said.

Wanneroo deputy mayor Dot Newton attended and accepted $1000 raised through the event, which will be distributed to women’s refugees.
