Reid urges support for winter appeal for Coast Shelter

An appeal by a foundation established by a real estate chain to provide winter essentials for those suffering from homelessness and domestic violence is being supported by Member for Robertson Dr Gordon Reid.

Dr Reid called on the community to support the Wiseberry Foundation's winter appeal, in aid of crisis accommodation service Coast Shelter .

"Winter is a particularly challenging time of the year for most of us, not least for those who might be homeless, escaping domestic violence or any other difficult circumstance.

"This year more than ever, we need to be supporting our brothers and sisters in the community who might be doing it tough or struggling to make ends meet," Dr Reid said.

"I have supported the appeal and I call on others in the community to do the same, if you are in a position to do so," said Dr Reid.

"Covid-19 is still here and causing a range of issues in the community.

"We mustn't forget the outcomes we can achieve when collectively the community works together to overcome challenges and help vulnerable community members."

Wiseberry Peninsula property manager Ms Tammy Jackett said: "Last year, Wiseberry Peninsula was able to collect a phenomenal 367 bags of winter essentials to go towards people doing it tough in the community.

"This response was thanks to amazing small businesses, hard-working schools and kind-hearted community members". Ms Jackett said.

"We're hoping this year we're able to beat last year's success and continue to show that our community is one of the most caring in the country," said Ms Jackett.

Wiseberry Peninsula director Mr Rod Dillon said: "It's great to have the support of our new Federal Member for Robertson Dr Reid."

The appeal is collecting donations for Coast Shelter, including socks, blankets, and warm winter clothing until June 30.
