A generous donation from the Quindanning and Boddington Country Women’s Association will give comfort to women escaping family violence.

The Rainbow Women’s Centre in Narrogin provides safe accommodation for women and children in the southern Wheatbelt and upper Great Southern.

The donation, which was made last month, included a 10kg washing machine, toaster, air-dryer, vacuum cleaner and knitted soft toys.

Darlene Devillers from the Quindanning and Boddington CWA said the group started their fundraising efforts last year.

“There’s a lot of domestic violence that’s around especially at the moment,” she said.

“We like to give to charities that aren’t too large so it doesn’t get eaten up in fees, so that people actually get something.”

Ms Devillers said the donation was a group effort. “We’re a collective, we’re two groups that are joined together and they were donated as the CWA,” she said.

Rainbow Women’s Centre program manager Tara Lanciano said the centre was “so grateful” for the support.

“Donations like those received recently ... make an enormous difference to clients who are accommodated at the refuge. It really makes a difference to their sense of wellbeing and importance,” she said.
