Friday fundraising supports SASS in their support for survivors

Posted on July 10th, 2024 by Jo Bailey

We were delighted to hand over our giant $1000 cheque to Sandi Doherty of Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) in June as part of our WLF Friday Fundraising program.

WLF has been supporting SASS for a number of years as part of their awareness raising month each April. This year our team decided to build on that through a Friday Fundraising campaign, a staff initiative allowing everyone in the firm to make a contribution. 

Sandi and the team at SASS are proud to see businesses and employees around Hobart recognising and contributing to the important work they do in the community. 

“We’re extremely grateful for the support from community and business fundraising efforts,” Sandi says.

“The simple act of having a donation box visible can empower survivors to contact us and ultimately, we want to reach everyone who needs support.” 

Since SASS was established over 30 years ago, Sandi says the growth in the organisation’s services for the community has been significant. 

“SASS is currently supporting over 1,000 people to receive individual counselling and support, but we know we can do so much more,” she continued.

“Every donation like this means that we can support more children, young people and adults who have experienced sexual abuse. No one should face this alone.”
