True Brothers Social Club SW members rallied together to raise funds for two women’s refuges in the South West.

Communicare coordinator at Tuart House Women’s Refuge Vanessa Rennie said the refuges don’t get a lot of funding for some of the things women need on exit from the service.

“This will mean we will be able to buy essential items for the women and they will have less financial strain when they leave,” she said.

South West Refuge coordinator Doreen Ferretti said both refuges were thankful for True Brothers donations and the support doesn’t go unnoticed.

“They are such a community-minded club and these donations will go straight to supporting the women and children,” Ms Ferretti said.

True Brothers Social Club president David Bland said the club wanted to give back to acknowledge and appreciate the fantastic work done at the refuges.

The social club raise funds for many other organisations through the community involvement in its motorbike charity rides, raffles, market stalls and auction nights.

True Brothers started in Kalgoorlie before it expanded into the South West.
