Stiebel Eltron gives a helping hand to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal
Stiebel Eltron is one of the valuable trades and suppliers that has donated its time and resources for the latest charity home, by Henley Homes – the 2021 Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Since 2018, Stiebel Eltron has supplied heat recovery ventilation with fine filtration to the charity home project. Future forward Henley shares Stiebel Eltron’s passion for Australian quality builds. By incorporating Stiebel Eltron heat recovery ventilation they have produced an energy efficient healthy home.
According to Andrew Whitney, Managing Director Stiebel Eltron Australia, it has been a humbling experience being part of such a worthwhile project.
“It is great to be involved with an initiative that provides substantial support to such a good cause. Seeing the home constructed from start to finish is something no doubt all are proud to take part in.”
More than 150 tradies have donated their labour and resources during the six-month build, helping to construct the latest charity home by Henley Homes, located in Wollert, on land donated by Villawood, and part of their Rathdowne community.
For Andrew and the team at Stiebel Eltron, the opportunity to be involved in this year’s GFA Charity Home was an easy one.
“It is important to give back to the communities, people and businesses that needs support. You can see the benefits every year and how it is helping so many people connected with the Royal Children’s Hospital with the new services and technology. Stiebel Eltron is always excited and happy to assist with such an amazing charity.”
Going under the hammer in 2021 will be the stunning Vogue 34 by Henley Homes, which is a 34-square, four-bedroom home, with four living areas, and an expansive master suite.
For the fourth year, every piece of furniture, soft furnishing and decorative accessory inside the Vogue 34 on auction day will be donated by key furniture partners and included as part of the auction price.
The Henley home also boasts a gourmet, multi-functional kitchen featuring Caesarstone™ benchtops, Italian-made SMEG™ stainless steel extra-large appliances including microwave and free-standing dishwasher, glass splashbacks with feature window and Innotech soft close drawers and doors to kitchen. The back yard will also feature an eye-catching half basketball court for all the family to enjoy.
Henley Homes Victorian Building Manager, Mark Glenn, said Victoria’s support for the Good Friday Appeal continues to grow from strength to strength.
“Every person connected to the charity home build, from Henley Homes and Villawood to all the trades and suppliers, have a personal connection to the cause, or are very aware of the significant work and service the Royal Children’s Hospital provides,” he said.
“When it comes to generosity, you don’t have to look further than our amazing team, trades and suppliers, who year after year continue to support the construction and delivery of a beautiful family home to auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to the appeal. Their contribution to the project is invaluable,” he said.
Villawood Properties’ Executive Director Rory Costelloe said that the RCH GFA Charity House Auction was the very embodiment of community spirit, which brought out the best in all involved.
“The RCH GFA Charity House Auction has become an initiative Villawood is extremely proud to be part of and we approach each year with the energy and excitement to deliver something bigger and better each time.
“At the heart of what we do is creating happy, healthy and connected communities and the incredible work done by the Royal Children’s Hospital is something that connects all Victorians. Being a parent is stressful enough, even when kids are fit and healthy, so the Royal Children’s Hospital plays an incredibly important role for the whole community through the treatment and care they provide, for both patients and their families.”Read more about the project
