DADAA NEEDS SUPPORT TO OPEN CAFE

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, disability, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on May 25, 2018

 

Arts and disability organisation, DADAA is moving ahead with the next phase of the redevelopment of the former Old Boys School at Fremantle’s Princess May Park with the creation of a cafe in the lovely courtyard behind the building.

The old 1901 kitchen at the core of the Fremantle heritage building is the next area to receive an upgrade with the creation of the new café Humble Pantry Fremantle.

DADAA had a dream of turning the old kitchen and courtyard into a great café that not only serves excellent coffee and healthy food, but also provides training and employment opportunities for people with disability.

DADAA, a not-for-profit organisation that provides access to art programs for people with disability, have partnered with dynamic mother-son team Clare and Kieran Cranny to open the café later this year.

The new café initiative is pursuing a sustainable financial model that is not reliant on government funding in order to meet its goal of providing employment for people with disability. DADAA and its new café operators are keen to work with businesses and individuals to meet this mission.

Local business Brayco got on board early, generously donating the commercial kitchen.

DADAA are now seeking other local businesses and donors to assist in raising the remaining $30,000 through crowdfunding to complete the fit-out of Fremantle’s first truly inclusive café – a place where the entire community can recognise accessibility and celebrate diversity.

Locals are invited to join the ‘Humble Coffee Club’ and to join in on this exciting community-building project with a contribution, large or small.

The campaign, which ends on 30 June 2018, has been launched with a video on the leading platform for cause-driven crowdfunding, StartSomeGood:

https://startsomegood.com/humblepantryfremantle.

Donors and supporters will recognise their name on a Giving Wall created by DADAA artists and will be invited to a celebratory opening to meet other generous individuals who want to see social enterprise like this initiative flourish in Fremantle.

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT FOR EAT NO EVIL OWNER

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, food, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on March 30, 2018

 

 

Terrible news about one of Fremantle’s nice guys Ben French of the Eat No Evil foodstall fame many know from the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks, Bathers Beach market, etc..

Benjamin ventured to Thailand on what was meant to be a break from reality.
When suddenly things turned for the worst. On the 28th of March 2018 Benjamin was involved in an accident which has now lead to the fight for survival. With extensive and life threatening injuries, Ben is currently in a critical condition.

Some of his current injuries include severe brain trauma, broken spine, punctured lungs, broken ribs, many broken bones throughout his body and severe damage to his skull. Several brain surgeries and blood transfusions have already taken place in order to stabilise his condition before the rest of his injuries can be attended to and assessed properly, but as his condition is extremely critical the hospital costs are continuing to rise – currently at $44 000 on day 2.

Ben is currently in a coma and alongside the extent of his injuries, the doctors have given us a time frame of 2 weeks to 3 months of ongoing hospital treatment for small gains to take place.

This page has been organised in hopes to help fundraise enough money to partially cover his hospital treatments. With positivity and blessings we hope to see his condition stabilise, where he can return to his hometown here in Perth and be surrounded by his family and friends with the continual care he requires. We are extending all helping hands in this time of need and are hopeful that you can find it within you to donate anything possible to help us reach the target. Thank you in advance to everyone who has extended their generosity. Please keep Benjamin in your thoughts and prayers.

If you can help financially please go to the Gofundme page:

Please share this information, so that we can get a lot of funding to help Ben!!! Thank you.

IMAGES OF INDIA FREO FUNDRAISER

OPENS TONIGHT!

Images of India is a fundraising exhibition by local photographer Juliet Murray.

The exhibition opens on Friday 16th March at 6.30pm at the Art of Freo Gallery at J Shed and runs Wednesday to Sunday 11-4pm until March 25th.  There will also be a fundraising raffle with heaps of great prizes.

India is a land of contrasts. It is a country that is immensely rich; in culture, spirituality and diversity. It is enchanting and beautiful place, overwhelming to the senses.

On the flipside, poverty is significant, with one on 5 living in extreme poverty, without access to basic human needs. Of the poor, only 20% have access to toilets, 60% to electricity and 6% to running water.

This fundraising exhibition aims to capture both the magnificence of this sacred country and it’s people whilst highlighting the issue of extreme poverty and struggles that the people face, in a compassionate and sensitive manner.

Proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Australian Friends of Asha, who work to support and raise awareness of the important work that is done by Asha India in tackling issues that keep slum dwellers trapped in poverty. Their programmes help slum residents gain access to healthcare, financial services and education, and make it possible for them to make long-term, positive changes to their lives.
