Australian Red Cross Big Cake Bake

We're thrilled to be joining other bakers in October and getting our colleagues together to raise money for the vital work of Red Cross, helping vulnerable people around Australia and overseas. Big Cake Bake is a fun and delicious way to make a difference to the lives of people in need.

Australian Red Cross is committed to helping vulnerable people across Australia and the region. Its work is focused on improving lives and reducing vulnerability: from reconnecting families and finding out the fate of loved ones torn apart by war, to providing over 750,000 nutritious breakfasts to school children each year. And when disaster strikes around the country, they are among the first to arrive and the last to leave.

Red Cross believes that mobilising the power of humanity can make a real difference to those in need. For more information about Red Cross programs and services and how you can get involved, visit redcross.org.au.

The Fremantle Symphony Orchestra is Western Australia's leading community orchestra. With a regular membership of about 60 amateur musicians it presents about 5 concerts each year including a subscription series of concerts at the Fremantle Town Hall.

John Birman Memorial Prize

John Birman MemorialFor many years Birman & Ride sponsored the annual John Birman Memorial Prize for the best works by graduating students of the Western Australian School of Visual Arts within the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts at Edith Cowan University. The awards honour John Birman, pioneering arts administrator and adult educationist.

The awards, made at the school's final year graduate exhibition, consisted of prizes for the best painting and the best work in any media.

The winning entries were acquired by the firm and hang in our city offices.
