MUSICIANS, food and picnic rugs will take over Ashdale Primary School’s oval on December 3.
From 5.30pm to 9pm, not-for-profit charity No Limits Perth is hosting a Twilight Family Picnic at the Darch school.
“No Limits Perth assists the local community in crisis, offering food hampers, household items, clothing, linen, toiletries and the basic necessities,” group member Janine Wood said.
“Our main support at this time goes to families of unemployed, homeless, the elderly, local women and children’s shelters, drug and rehabilitation centres, Operation Blue Santa for the WA Police, assisting the Department of Child Protection and Family Support, MercyCare, newcomers and anyone just doing it tough.”
Ms Wood said the event aimed to raise enough funds to buy a three-tonne truck with a lift and secure a warehouse or storage facility for donated items.
There will be some food and market stalls and a sausage sizzle, or bring your own picnic.
Live entertainment includes performances from Australian Idol finalist Chris Murphy, duo Elyshia and Arielle Heap and Lady T, Christmas carols and games and activities for the kids.
Tickets are $5 each or $15 for a family of two adults and up to four children from www.trybooking.com/NSYK or on the night.
No Limits Perth, which is run by six volunteers, is also looking for sponsorship to help with fencing and staging for the event, with AllightSykes donating a lighting tower and some commercial barbecues.
To help, contact 0490 676 979 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
No Limits Perth has seven collection points for donated items: Merriwa, Kinross, Hocking, Landsdale, Malaga, Wembley and Palmyra.
