As the Christmas holiday season approaches, the Sport & Community Development team at Inclusion WA would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of the communities we have worked with throughout 2016.
Lizzie is a young lady who is passionate about her vegan lifestyle and really enjoys volunteering at various animal sanctuaries. Lizzie also works two days per week doing a ‘tea towel run’ for local businesses in Perth. With the assistance of her Mum and mentors from Inclusion WA, Lizzie visits 9 businesses in total. She collects their dirty tea towels and delivers beautifully cleaned, ironed and folded tea towels straight to their kitchen. The role sees Lizzie spend one day per week doing the deliveries (with an essential hot chocolate stop on the way) and washing and drying the tea towels. The next day, Lizzie irons, folds and packs the tea towels ready for the following week.
Brooke is a highly motivated young lady who has a strong passion for animals and love of cooking. She is 23 years old and spends her week juggling two Tafe courses in Animal Care and Retail, working at Good Sammy’s and volunteering for Native Animal Rescue. Brooke has also recently passed her L plates and will be taking driving lessons soon. Phew! Brooke is one busy lady but she handles her week with maturity and a great level of independence.
