Do you want to learn how to knit? Or have recently started and would like to meet some new friends to share your creativity with, all while having a good chat? Perth Knitting Club has classes for you.
In partnership with local charity AYLA ( Assisting Your Life To Achieve) Cockburn Gateway has set up a drop-off zone where you can leave donations of back-to-school essentials. These donations will be used to help local disadvantaged families with schoolchildren headed back to school next week.
Donations can include backpacks, pens, pencils, notebooks, library bags - anything that is suitable for school students is greatly appreciated. Why not pick up an extra pack of pens or notebooks as you shop and pop them in the drop-off zone? Easy!
The drop zone will be outside Kathmandu until Sunday, 3 February.
Even the smallest donation can make a big difference to a Perth family struggling to make ends meet as school returns.
