Partnerships

 

WE ARE COLLABORATORS – we foster co-operation between individuals and organisations, bringing credibility and enthusiasm to every partnership we undertake.

 
For many years GFS Perth has partnered with a variety of organisations, groups and individuals because we believe we are all stronger, better equipped and able to make a difference together.
 

PAMPER A NANNA

A few years ago we began helping out with the Pampa A Nanna day which is run in early December each year. This is for the “Nannas” of the Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren to come along and be pampered. St Catherine’s House of Hospitality in Tuart Hill provide a lovely venue and morning tea and lunch for everyone. GFS goes along and provides whatever support is needed for the day. In the past we have painted nails, done craft activities with the ladies, provided a “Karaoke” sing along, told jokes and most importantly provided a listening ear to those who need it. This is a wonderful group of ladies who have done and are still doing an amazing job of raising their grandchildren. GFS also provide the ladies with a bag of food goods to share with their families over Christmas.

 

 

SHARE THE DIGNITYShare the Dignity

2017 was the first time we partnered with Share the Dignity (a homeless women’s charity) to be a drop off point for their Christmas Appeal “Its in the bag”.  Some of our members also helped out with donations as well.  We managed to take a car load of donated bags and goods to Bunnings to be distributed.  We look forward to helping out with them again in the future with more ongoing support.  
 
 

PARKERVILLE CHILDREN’S HOME

 
GFS in 2017 began supporting Parkerville Children’s Home again.  Throughout our history (as early as 1924) we have supported them in various ways.  At Christmas 2017 we purchased gifts and toys for the children and youth for distribution by Parkerville.  
 
 

 

CHURCH COMMUNITIES

GFS has a large range of “Big Games” and we invite churches or Christian organisations to borrow when available.  You can ask for help in running the games from us or just use them for your next event free of charge.  All we ask is that you supervise the use of them and clean them before returning to us please.  Contact us for what we have and availability.

CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

 
We have been very fortunate to be able to be part of the annual Christmas Pageant in Perth for many of the 45+ years it has been running.  We have been on the Nativity Float for all but 1 of these years when we walked in the pageant in costume instead.  Children from our groups dress up and participate to bring the “true meaning of Christmas” to the City of Perth.
