  • Helping Hands Serving the ANZACS

    Posted: 27 April 2012

    Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth, Western Australia, has a number of tree-lined avenues, set aside to honour service personnel who died in the two World Wars and other engagements. At the base of each tree is a plaque inscribed with the name of the deceased, age, date and manner of death and who dedicated the plaque. For 2 hours, these streets were a sea of bright yellow as Helping Hands volunteers of all ages, from all four stakes in Perth, lovingly cleaned and polished over 1,400 plaques. More than 80 Church members and their friends wanted to show gratitude to those who died defending their country, in preparation for the annual Dawn Service which was attended by over 40,000 people on Anzac day.  Full Story
