Club member, Deb Mason, was honoured at a Rotary Club of Como event on 29 August when she received a Paul Harris Award for her magnificent contribution to helping families in crisis.
Deb established a charity called Starting Over Support (SOS) to provide furniture and household items to women leaving refuges – so that they could start their new lives with a furnished home. Over the years the program expanded from a shed to an industrial unit – from using cars with trailers to having a furniture truck funded by Lotterywest.
Deb worked tirelessly with SOS and has helped put hundreds of families back on their feet in times of crisis. Congratulations Deb – a well deserved honour!
