Hannah’s House receives $25 000 Lotterywest Grant

13 April 2018

  • Member for Cannington Bill Johnston presented Chairman Rob Pini with a Lotterywest Grant cheque for $25 000 today.
  • Hannah’s House is based in Cannington and provides services to children and families with life limiting conditions.

Hannah’s House has been inspired by Hannah Watson who was born in 1991 and passed away in 2010. Hannah had a rare syndrome called Opitz Trigonocephaly.

Hannah’s House provides services such as:

  • Assistance with transition from hospital or other care facility to the family home
  • In-home short term planned day and overnight respite
  • Crisis care
  • In-home palliative care.

Lotterywest’s support for the community is only possible because of the retailers and players of lottery products.

In 2016/17 Lotterywest raised $265 Million to support the WA community.

Information about applying for Lotterywest grants is available online.
