THE second annual Celebrating People coffee table book featuring stories and photos of volunteers, staff and clients from community support service provider Rise launched last month.
With its grass-roots planted in the Shire of Mundaring, Rise began in 1983 when a group of volunteers got together to help offer a variety of support services to the hills community.
The group expanded to provide services for aged care, people with disability, mental health and youth services from Joondalup to Northam and has centres in the Swan area.
Rise chief executive officer Justine Colyer said an event held at the charity’s head office in Middle Swan brought together staff and participants for the unveiling of the book.
“Following the great success of our inaugural book last year, this book is another brilliant collection of stories and photographs,” she said.
“As Rise has had significant growth over the past two years it is fantastic to showcase our centres, clients and staff from all over Perth.”
The final product was kept under wraps until its presentation on the day.
There are plans to release a new book every year to share more great stories.
Copies of the book are available at Helen’s Place, 12 Leslie Rd, Middle Swan.
