THE Anglican Parish of All Saints Rosebud and St Katherines McCrae are holding a raffle of an artist-inspired doll’s house to raise money for Southern Peninsula Community Support, which works directly with the homeless in Rosebud.
The Reverend Lynda Crossley said homelessness was a significant social issue in the area, and the raffle was one way to help with support and resources.
The doll’s house was donated by her aunt, artist and writer Anita Sinclair, and was inspired by Sinclair’s time in Cornwall during the World War II as an evacuee.
Southern Peninsula Community Support runs many programs, including the homeless program known as SPLASH, and provides food and vouchers to obtain clothing for All Saints Op Shop, as well as tents and sleeping bags.
There is also a laundry and shower service for people sleeping rough in the Rosebud area, and housing support and other services.
Raffle tickets will be available at All Saints Op Shop on Ninth Avenue, Rosebud, from 4 November.
