Georgiana Molloy Anglican School has joined forces with the City of Busselton in the lead up to Anti Poverty Week in October.

On October 17 the City of Busselton will be hosting a film night fundraiser with the money raised going to Cliff’s Kitchen.

The night will feature the entertaining movie Just Eat It which reveals the adventures of a food-loving couple who commit to eating only rescued food for six months.

After the movie City of Busselton waste education officer Bessie Mullhall will provide some quick tips on reducing food waste in your home.

Guests are also welcome to bring a non-perishable item to donate to assist with stocking the pantry at Cliff’s.

The night will start at 6.30pm with tickets available for $10 and includes a meal.

As part of the fundraising efforts GMAS held a Free Dress Day in support of Anti Poverty Week.

The week is from October 14-2- and is a national call to action to do something about poverty.

Community based program Cliff’s Kitchen ensures all people have a place to go for a hot meal and fellowship.

Cliff’s is a volunteer run program which is open every Wednesday lunch time.

The money raised from the school fundraiser will be presented to Cliff’s Kitchen on the movie night.

During the Free Dress Day City of Busselton Mayor Grant Henley, Reverend Wayne Warfield and St Mary’s Anglican Church Kerry Bailey visited the students and will also play a role in the movie fundraiser.
