Thanks to the efforts of Gosnells Uniting Church Op-Shop coordinator, Patricia Booker-Woods and her team of 30 volunteers, $5,000 has been raised for school chaplaincy.
The money was raised through sales in the shop, and Patricia believes it couldn’t go to a worthier cause.
“Chaplaincy is so important, something I believe in and has a direct impact on our local community,” she said.
The Op-Shop was started 15 years ago, and has had a huge impact on the local community.
“There is clearly a need in the community — we have a steady flow of customers and quite a few regulars,” Patricia said. “Often our shoppers end up becoming volunteers — all of whom do a fabulous job.”
