Government restrictions on travel and social distancing measures have been in full effect for a while now and while we all grapple with what this looming health crisis means a small group has been caught in between (between a home and pandemic). After abruptly losing their permanent accommodation, acquaintances turned friends like Aubrey Roe and his two daughters were plunged into a less than ideal situation. Through the good work of an advocacy DayDawn and many contributions from Fremantle restaurants(Strange company and a few more) we've been able to provide temporary relief for some who need it the most. While we might only be a short stop  for the few, it's been incredible to experience and witness businesses, individuals and all the many parts that make up the Freo community rally together to help one another.  It's moments an like these that remind us that it's all gonna be ok.
