Ms Faskel, who works at St John of God Health Care’s Osborne Park office, has dwarfism, a condition that requires a specially modified vehicle to accommodate her small stature.

Her colleagues heard about her plight to raise $3000 to modify a car to enable her to drive it and planned fundraisers.

Activities included a pink day where staff members made donations and dressed in pink.

The efforts raised almost $3500 for the modifications, once she finishes driving lessons and buys her car.
