42. Walpole CRC, WA

Project 42 – Walpole Community Resource Centre, WA

Walpole is a small isolated and somewhat remote town on the South Coast, on the border between the South West and Great Southern Regions of Western Australia, with a permanent resident population of less than 500. Walpole has, like the rest of the country, an ageing population where over sixty percent of the population is aged over 60 years. Due to the size and age of our community the Walpole CRC plays a vital role within the community.
They already have some funds to put towards a solar installation but not enough, so they’ve asked for our help.
