Build starts on Make-A-Wish charity house

THE first slab has been poured for a new charity house in Cambridge that will help grant the wishes of Tasmanian children with life-threatening illnesses.

Upon completion, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, which is being built by Wilson Homes in collaboration with K&D Warehouse and other local suppliers, will be sold at auction with all proceeds donated to Make-A-Wish Australia.

Make-A-Wish Hobart branch president Janine Arnold said she was delighted by the partnership, which was helping the not-for-profit organisation move closer to its goal of granting 2000 wishes each year.

“As a charity funded solely on donations with no government funding, support from organisations such as Wilson Homes and K&D Warehouse, as well as the local Hobart community, is integral to the success of Make-A-Wish,” she said.

Wilson Homes general manager Scott Wilson said he was pleased to be able to help Make-A-Wish with its fundraising goals.

“Make-A-Wish Hobart do incredible work in the community to ensure wishes can be granted for seriously ill children in Tasmania,” he said.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to support what they do.”

The charity build was officially launched on 5 June with a breakfast barbecue at the Cambridge Estate site.
