Member Norton Gold Fields has made its single biggest donation of $50 000 this year to fund the Goldfields Individual and Family Support Association's Saturday morning program.
The Norton Saturday Morning Club will provide respite for carers of children with various disabilities by providing the opportunity to participate in a broad range of sporting and recreational activities.
Earlier this week Norton Gold Fields Corporate HR and HSE Manager Brian Sowden addressed the crowd gathered at GIFSA.
"GIFSA is an outstanding community organisation and is the most worthy recipient I can imagine," Brian said.
The club is targeted at school aged siblings, school aged carers and families with school aged children and runs every Saturday from 9am to 12pm.
GIFSA Chief Executive Officer Robert Hicks thanked Norton for their support.
"I give my sincere appreciation to Brian and I hope we can continue this relationship," Robert said.
GIFSA is an incorporated association that supports people with disabilities, those who care for them, and their families. As a not-for-profit registered charity that grew out of the community back in 1991, GIFSA collaborates with other community based organisations, State and Federal Governments to provide a range of individualised services.
GIFSA's aim is to be the local service provider of choice through excellence by "Celebrating Life's Journey". We do this by supporting individuals and their families to live a good life by providing person centered services that are tailored to their individual needs and aspirations.
