PLANS to build an all abilities play space at Whiteman Park are underway, with MLC Donna Faragher helping the cause and hosting a Sconetober morning tea.

The fundraising month aims to raise money to build Pia’s Place at Whiteman Park – an inclusive play space for children of all ages and abilities.

Pia’s Place is driven by the Rudd family who lost their baby girl Pia Maeve to SIDS.

The project is part of the Touched by Olivia Foundation and supported by Lions Club of Noranda and Whiteman Park.

Ms Faragher raised $5000 from her morning tea, with all funds going towards making Pia’s Place a reality.

“All children love to play and for some time I have been a supporter of the creation of Pia’s Place,” she said.

“It will be a playground for children of all ages and abilities to enjoy.”
