Car restraints wanted to keep kids safe

Car restraints wanted to keep kids safe

The Lismore Women and Childrens Refuge Centre (LWCRC) is asking local people and businesses, including manufacturers of child restraints, to donate new car child restraints, booster seats and/or funds so the centre can purchase car seats for its young clients.

The centre will use the restraints to transport children and their parents, and will work with Dennys Upholsterers to ensure the child seats meet current standards and are correctly fitted.

If you can help out in any way, phone the Eva Roberts at the LWCRC on 6621 2685.
