Ms White, who joined the Joondalup-based charity in 2011, won the Women in Industry rising star award on June 25, having also secured a vehicle for another two years.

The legacy organisation started in 2010 to help resource workers and their families when they face injury, illness and loss of life.

Pilbara Motor Group donated a four-wheel-drive to the charity two years ago and recently agreed to continue providing that support for another two years, with the vehicle used to visit mine sites across WA.

Ms White said Miners’ Promise was also an advocacy and referral service, with access to screened professionals ready to assist with everyday needs.

‘Life presents us all with challenges at various stages of our lives and we see our role as empowering families who may be at an emotionally vulnerable stage to get peace of mind,’ she said.

‘Pilbara Motor Group has provided us with an invaluable resource, allowing us to create greater awareness of our services by visiting employees and their families.’
