The Salvation Army and Karrinyup Shopping Centre called on popular stars of Ghost the Musical, Rob Mills and Jemma Rix, to share the love with those in need this winter.

The group is asking the people of Perth to donate a piece of warm clothing as part of the annual Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal, running from 7th June to 3rd July at Karrinyup Shopping Centre.

In its seventh consecutive year, the Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal will support the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal and deliver real, tangible assistance to some of Perth’s most disadvantaged.

Recent statistics reveal staggering results on how people are entrenched in poverty across Australia, and suffer more than ever in the winter months. Key statistics indicate that:

57% have gone without meals
59% had either delayed or been unable to pay a utility bill
67% of respondents experienced extreme housing stress, paying more than 50% of their income for accommodation
60% of children went without five or more essential items in life

Karrinyup Shopping Centre, Marketing Manager, Claire Ridley, said the Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal was a call-out to the Perth community to donate coats, jackets, jumpers, baby and children’s clothing, new blankets or doonas for individuals and families less fortunate.
