This year we were excited to be successful Lotterywest Grant recipients! Our request had included a volunteer and visitor ablution block and emergency generator to supply power to the Sanctuary during outages.
The ablution block provides an accessible facility for the Sanctuary visitors and volunteers and includes a toilet, sink and shower. Arriving in September, we were very appreciative of Neil Gill Trucking and Hiab for volunteering their time and truck to safely deliver the building to the Valley. It was no small feat, with Neil and his partner skillfully guiding their way through the tree-lined driveway and placing the cargo perfectly into position!
The emergency generator is a critical addition to the property, especially during summer, given the Sanctuary water supply is dependent on electricity. This generator will ensure we can operate all our water pumps and defend the property from fire if needed. It also means a guaranteed supply of fresh water to troughs and ponds is available during outages, which will be a huge help in the summer months in keeping our animal residents happy and healthy.
Thank you Lotterywest for your support! To see some of the great work assisted by Lotterywest, be sure to check out http://dreamstate.lotterywest.wa.gov.au
