LOCAL businesses have helped to raise thousands of dollars for a Burns Beach charity.
Wanneroo Business Association hosted a fundraising event this month in Wangara, which pulled in $3450 for anti-bullying organisation Kidzucate and was attended by representatives from about 50 businesses.
The total may rise as the association is also donating the cost of the first month of membership for all members who join in June.
Kidzucate director Azelene Williams said she was overwhelmed and grateful for the support. The funds will be used to create advocacy packs.
