Western Emergency Relief Network

This week our Guest speaker was Julianne Bartels representing the Western Emergency Relief Network (WERN)

This new organisation is based on being able to supply household furniture and other household requirements to Western Suburbs residents in urgent need.

It is based on the successful Eastern Emergency Relief Network, EERN.

  1. My neighbour at 37 Windsor Drive, Avondale heights has a nice couch to donate.
    Could we please arrange a pick up?
