All proceeds support vital Red Cross services within our community. Red Cross work with those who are vulnerable, sick or suffering.

In 1963, a group of five young wives and mothers started volunteering at their local Red Cross respite centre Lady Lawley Cottage in Cottesloe. The centre provided care for children with profound disabilities. Daily members of this group collected and drove children to and from their home and the centre. Through their contact with the centre, the group realised the Red Cross was short of funds and decided to hold a jumble sale in the garage of one of their members in order to raise a small amount they could then donate on. They sold clothing they did not want or that their children had outgrown. Within two years, the garage on Bindaring Parade in Peppermint Grove was too small for the quantity of jumble they were collecting from friends and family so the sale relocated to Perth Town Hall and became a regular event on the social calendar for many women in Perth. Gradually the quality of donated clothing improved and so an auction was instigated to help achieve higher prices for some of the fabulous outfits. By 1969, they aimed to raise $1000 each year to support Lady Lawley cottage in its work. To date the branch has raised over $1.3 million dollars through the sale of second hand clothes.
