Organisation: St Pats and Uniting Care West (UCW)

Project: St Pats and UCW - Client Christmas Party

For many years, St Pats and Uniting Care West Fremantle have held individual Christmas parties for its clients. Christmas can be a difficult time for vulnerable people, and both organisations have worked hard to put together a joyful event that celebrates the year past and hope for the year ahead. This year, the organisations are working together on a joint event in Princess May Park on 18 December. Combining the best of UCW and St Pat’s approaches, it will be a picnic-style cold lunch. There will be a range of entertainment, including a visit from Santa. Given the resource constraints affecting all not-for-profits, collaboration between services is increasingly important. A joint event will not only allow them to deliver a better event for clients, it will also help develop and cement relationships between staff of the agencies.

Organisation: Spinnaker Foundation

Project: Spinnaker HRF Annual Awards Night 

Spinnaker Health Research Foundation was established as an independent charitable entity Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation in 1996, and later re-branded Spinnaker in an homage to its founding Chair Warren Jones under an expanded agreement with Fiona Stanley Hospital. Its Annual Awards Night event is an opportunity to celebrate the beginning of new research projects, in the knowledge that they will have an impact on the health and wellbeing of our community. 2019 marked a record number of grant applications, and it is our aim to award as much of our budget as possible to research projects.

Organisation: North Fremantle Football Club

Project: North Fremantle Football Club Centenary – 'We Shall Never Forget Your Sons'

North Fremantle Football Club (NFFC) is one of the oldest football clubs in Western Australia and will be celebrating its centenary in 2020. To commemorate the milestone the club is looking to preserve its rich history by digitising club records, photographs and memorabilia as well as collecting oral history and video records from significant club contributors. This will then be used to develop an eight-page printed publication which tells the significant stories of North Fremantle Football Club and its community. The publication will be developed by a life member Baden Pratt who is a historical author and ex journalist.
