Supporting those who support others

Fibro & Us are a support and social group for people who suffer from Fibromyalgia in Mandurah, Kwinana, Rockingham and Baldivis.

They set up the group to help support other people with the condition, raise awareness and provide a safe place for those who are affected by the silent illness. 

This February, the group featured on one of the Local Matters jars at Rockingham. During the month, our team invited the group to come in for a meal where they were lucky to meet 10 of the group members. Our staff loved getting to meet the members and have a chat to them throughout their lunch. So much so, the team decided to donate a Grill’d gift card for a raffle auction that the group have coming up.

But wait, there’s more. Later in the month, the group held a sausage sizzle fundraiser where our team volunteered to man the grill. After all, who know grilling better than Grill’d? Our team enjoyed getting to know the group, and it was great to see the community come together to raise almost $2,000.

The leader of the support group, Michelle, has said she will be suggesting the group head down to Grill'd for some of their regular meetings and we definitely hope they do.

Make sure you check out your local Grill’d to enjoy a feed and support other amazing groups operating in your local community.
