Clubs on Show

2017

In 2017 the funds from the Show were used to support:

variety

Variety – the Children’s Charity supports kids and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with disability.

Their work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. They endeavour to ensure all kids can always join in, regardless of their circumstances.

Variety empower children in WA who are sick, disadvantaged or living with disability to live, laugh and learn.

Constable Care Foundation is Western Australia’s leading safety education provider.

For more than 32 years, the Foundation has delivered creative, performance-based safety and crime prevention programs to millions of WA children.

Perhaps best known for lower primary school puppet shows which have entertained and educated generations of young children, the Foundation has evolved to meet the challenges and needs of children and young people of today through a range of new products and services.

Utilising the participatory approach of internationally-recognised Forum Theatre, our programs raise awareness, influence attitudes and deliver real behaviour change, making a significant difference to the lives of children and young people across Western Australia.

Support from the AFD purchased a refigerated cold water drink fountain in the outside area of the cycle school in Maylands.  The installation of this water fountain reduced traffic in and out of the building for children to access water, this reducing air conditioning costs.  Also provided an important source of water to keep children hydrated on warm days.

In addition to the water fountain the AFD also purchased a large quantity of Constable Care cuddly dolls to go into comfort packs for displaced children.  Every day children are displaced from the family home for many reasons - serious road accidents, domestic violence etc. and they are given a care pack with essentials to get them by.  Toothbruch, tooth paste, PJs, a cuddly doll and a few other items.

The AFD is very proud to support this worth organisation.
