Kids the winners of grant

�It will allow us to organise two to three events which will allow our children and their families to meet up – because of lot of them, with their complex heart conditions, have self-esteem issues,� HeartKids WA support manager Cecilia Donovan said.

In the western suburbs, the bank also gave the Autism Association of WA $9000 and Parents of Children with Disabilities $9900. Charities No Matter What and Ronald McDonald House each received $10,000.

The Princess Margaret Hospital for Children Foundation got $6800 and the Women and Infants Research Foundation was awarded $7500.

HeartKids WA, established in 1979, helps children with congenital heart conditions and their parents and families, and supports about 1500 families.

Ms Donovan said options for events that had yet to be decided, but could include mystery bus tours, career advice and first-aid skills for the children.
