About Mandurah Murray Mayday Inc.
In 2013, Mandurah Murray Mayday Club celebrated 40 years of helping people in the Peel region.
A group of women who have children with disabilities originally started the group. In 1973 the ten women rented a shop in Barragup where they raised money for the children.
Six years later the mothers built a house on a block in Carcoola. The house was designed to be used as a school for the children of the Peel region. A bus was purchased to take the children to school.
The school was opened in 1980 but only operated for four years, due to a lack of children attending.
The house is still used for the disadvantaged in the district.
In 1982, the ten women decided to become independent and changed their name to Mandurah Murray Mayday Club.
Six years later a property in Davey Street was renovated and made into a shop.
The Barragup shop was built in 1994.
Today, Mayday assists more than 200 organisations and charities.
