WANNEROO Central shopping centre owner Charter Hall and social enterprise group Two Good are partnering to provide 20,000 meals to women and children’s refuges across Australia.

The property group will run the Delivering Good campaign across 26 shopping centres, including Wanneroo, until August 25.

It has set up a giant jigsaw puzzle frame in the centre, and shoppers can add pieces to the puzzle, with a Two Good meal donated to a nearby shelter for each piece fitted into it.

The puzzle-building process symbolises domestic violence survivors rebuilding their lives and the role the community can play.

“One in four women in Australia experience domestic violence at some point, and many of them end up in refuges whilst they work through this very challenging time in their lives,” Charter Hall retail chief executive Greg Chubb said.

“Two Good is doing extraordinary work in supporting these shelters and the women in them.”

A puzzle builder started the build at Wanneroo Central this week, encouraging shoppers to participate.

As the pieces come together, they will reveal images of the Two Good community, including founder Rob Caslick, Delivering Good ambassadors Neil Perry and Maggie Beer, and women who have experienced domestic violence.

Shoppers who choose a ‘golden’ puzzle piece at random will also receive a Maggie Beer cookbook or a Rockpool dining experience worth $600.

“The 20,000 meals funded by the Delivering Good campaign will go directly to shelters and refuges close to those centres,” Mr Caslick said.
