Supporting Australian charities and community events is very important to us at WFA and over the years we’ve supported many.
This year, once again WFA is proud to be supporting the McDonald Jones ‘Build for a Cure’ home, which raises vital funds for the Children’s Cancer Institute.
Every year more than 950 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer. The Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia entirely dedicated to childhood cancer. Their mission is to put an end to childhood cancer through research.
McDonald Jones Homes have teamed up with the McCloy group to build the Cambridge design home at The Bower, Medowie, in the Hunter region, New South Wales.
Ambassador and star of the popular Channel Nine show, ‘The Block’, Scott Cam is supporting the fundraiser again, along with players from the Newcastle Knights. And just like The Block the pressure is on to build and furnish the four-bedroom home in just 21 days!
This is a truly beautiful home furnished by Freedom and with Fisher & Paykel appliances along with other kind donations. In the stunning gourmet kitchen, you’ll find a donation from WFA – a Platinum inline water filter.
This means that the new owners will have fresh, filtered water direct from their kitchen tap so they can enjoy all the health benefits of filtered water.
There was great excitement at the big reveal and open day on Sunday 16th September. You can watch the final stages of the build here.
Managing Director of McDonald Jones Homes says,
“Collaborating with Children’s Cancer Institute, McCloy Group and our Hunter tradies, partners and suppliers, we are excited to be building this home at The Bower, to help find a cure for childhood cancer.
We’re enormously proud of being a leading partner in Build for a Cure, as it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to give back to families in need, as well as do our bit for the health and wellbeing of children across Australia.”
The next big day is the auction on the 21st October where the beautiful home will be auctioned off to the highest bidder and the proceeds will go to the Childhood Cancer Institute.
Auction day is sure to be a great family day out. If you can’t make it you can still help support Build for a Cure by donating here.
WFA has also recently donated to support Ray Debono, Purchasing Manager at Allam Property Group in the 2018 Oxfam Trailwalker.
The Oxfam Trailwalker is Australia’s original team endurance event in which teams of four tackle 100kms or 50kms of Australian bush within 48 or 24 hours.
All money raised goes towards helping Oxfam Australia fight poverty.
On 24th August Ray and his team, ‘The Wandering Wallys’ completed the course in just under 30 hours and raised over $21,000…and still counting. Awesome work, team!
Every family has different ways in which they use their water. One thing we all have in common is wanting the cleanest and safest drinking water in our homes. Filtering your drinking water is one the easiest things you can do to ensure you and your family are getting the best tasting, cleanest smelling, and safest drinking water possible. Why would you compromise? But which system is best for you. Let’s take a look.
