Evelyn Tierney, a WAQA member, came with her daughter, Maria, and a fellow board member to select a quilt to raffle as a fund raiser for Friends of L’Arche, Perth Inc.
They are working towards becoming part of the international federation of communities known as L’Arche, where people from all spiritual paths, with or without disabilities, share daily life together.
L’Arche has grown to become 145 communities in 34 countries. Have a look at their website larch.org.au to see the wonderful work the community is doing to support those with an intellectual disability.
The raffle will be up and running soon to time in with L’Arch’s 50th anniversary celebrations. We hope they will raise a significant sum of money for their worthy endeavours.
