Locals Flock to Support Hand-Painted Duck Art Auction

The Zonta Club of Perth Northern Suburbs Inc. raised funds for victims of domestic violence through the auction and sale of uniquely painted and decorated wooden ducks. Local identities, artists, sports people and others volunteered their time and skills to produce the birds.

The project was the brainchild of former member Dianne “Di” Bryant who lost her battle with cancer in 2011. Di, a member of the club for 21 years, was the instigator of many successful fundraising ventures within the club. She lived life to the full and was always mindful of the plight of those less fortunate than herself.

One of the club’s newer members, Fran Cramphorn, took on the role of Project Manager. The project made a net profit of $18,500 which will fund three four-day holiday camps for kids under the auspices of the Domestic Violence Children’s Counselling Service.
