A community market

The offspring of the Northam Chamber of Commerce and Northam Women in Business is a relatively young phenomenon known as the Northam Farmers Market. Only a mere 18mths old it has started to attract attention as a small baby would for community and charity drives in Northam.

The latest deserving charity at the markets is

“Winter Coats for a Cure”.

This official fundraiser proudly supports the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation and has been initiated by local boy Mason Barr who recently completed a $5km run for the charity raising more than $200. 100% of the proceeds go to the Perth Children’s Hospital – Children’s Cancer Ward 3B and EVERYONE can help in 1 of 2 ways:


Clear your wardrobe and donate a winter coat to the fundraising cause. It also means those in need can afford a warm coat for winter. Coats and jackets can be either dropped off at the Northam Chamber of Commerce office between 9.30-1 Monday to Friday, or alternatively Mason’s mum, Kate can come around and collect. Who doesn’t have a jacket or coat they no longer need?

Buy a Coat (prices start at $5)

The Winter Coats for a Cure can be found at the Northam Lions Market which meets at Bernard Park every 1st Saturday of the month. Next markets are during the school holiday on July 7th


You can also donate directly to Mason’s fundraising page:


Stacey and I also had a short chat with Mason to see what this charity drive was all about.
