I promoted the Fremantle LEEUWIN Foundation Open Day this Saturday but did not know what it was about, so here some information I was sent by them.
The event is to launch and raise awareness about our 100s and 1000s campaign which is a fundraising campaign to keep the Leeuwin’s youth development program continuing to run as we approach our 30th anniversary. We are seeking the community’s support to ensure we can keep the STS Leeuwin II, Western Australia’s very own tall ship, in ship-shape for the next generation of 14-25 year-olds to engage in our award-winning youth development and leadership program.
Basically the idea is there are 100s and 1000s of ways to support our Foundation which has 100’s of dedicated volunteers and 1000’s of young trainees whose lives have been positively changed from a Leeuwin voyage. Putting a quirky spin on that concept we are using the idea of “Fairybread Fridays” as a suggestion of ways to raise some funds – also the idea behind the open day this Saturday. We will have volunteers dressed up in colours representing the 100s and 1000s and while inviting the public for tours of the ship, fairy bread, face-painting and photos – also informing them of the campaign to keep the Leeuwin running.

The Fremantle LEEUWIN Foundation has got an Open Day this Saturday October 17 from 10 am to 2 pm to launch their 100s and 1000s campaign. I have no idea what the campaign is about, so maybe someone can let us know.
Anyway, for a cold coin donation you can get on board the STS Leeuwin II and there will be other activities on the day.
They are at B Shed berth on Victoria Quay next to the Rottnest ferry terminal.
