Early Learning Centre helps the bush to grow

The YMCA Early Learning Centre at the corner of Luyer Avenue and Station Street in East Cannington held a fund raising event in December 2012. The Early Learning Centre then donated half of the funds raised at the event to the Friends of Queens Park Bushland.

On 7 December 2012 the YMCA Early Learning Centre held an auction of the children’s artwork and raised $400. As in previous years, the Early Learning Centre generously donated half of the funds raised to a local non-profit organisation.

Some of the Friends of Queens Park Bushland met with the staff and students of the Early Learning Centre on 15 January 2013 to receive a giant novelty cheque for $200. The cheque had been beautifully painted by the children to include depictions of the flowers and wildlife they had seen in the bush.

The cheque is proudly displayed at the Canning River Eco Education Centre.

We thank the East Cannington YMCA Early Learning Centre for their generosity and the donation will be used to support our revegetation activities.
