We are a small commmunity shop based in Kaniva, West Wimmera, Victoria. If you live in the Kaniva area and have something to sell, please pop in.
The Purple Starfish cooperative shop is open to all community members. We are proud winners of the Western Victoria Creative Communities Volunteering Awards for 2013. Please call Helen Hobbs on 5392 2657 if you have goods made in Kaniva to sell; vegies, plants, cooking, art, craft, etc. Volunteer helpers are also very welcome. A small commission is charged on goods sold to assist with running costs and the community grants fund
Every dollar you spend supports a local person, local business or local community group. We strive to run our store on minimum expenses so that we can support as many local groups as possible.
If you are a community group in Kaniva, please download a funding application for our small grants program. Applications should seek to have broad community benefit to our own local community and money should be spent locally if possible. Applications should be for items that are difficult to fund through other grants. If you are looking for equipment items, then please apply for a volunteering equipment grant first. If you are looking to fund infrastructure, then please apply for the WWSC grant and apply for our fund to assist with the dollar for dollar component. We have limited funds and try to assist with as many groups as possible where funding by other means is difficult. Please provide quotes with your application if applicable. There is no timeline and all applications are considered pending availability of money. If you have any questions, then please contact Helen Hobbs on 5392 2657
