GIFT FOR THE KIDS

GIFT FOR THE KIDS

LOCAL tradies dropped everything when they got the call to help out at Cottage by the Sea.
Initially prompted by Ocean Grove mum Rebecca Confoy’s appeal for painters to help spruce up the Queenscliff property that provides fun and respite for disadvantaged young kids, more than 20 chippies plasterers, plumbers, painters and sparkies have swamped the job.
Among the big helpers have been Le Maistre Builders which has sourced and material from friendly suppliers and donated time and materials to helping revamp the kitchen, shower and timber work in big parts of the 1930s building. Le Maistre provided tradies throughout 20 days but brought in a 15-strong team on Monday last week to knock it over in ‘Block-style’.
Other Ocean Grove helpers included Saltbush Plumbing with donations from Volare and Reece Plumbing Supplies, as well as Nikki’s Painting Service, Tall Tim Carpentry and Bells Interior Lining.
“We are incredibly grateful to Le Maistre for their huge donation of time and materials to see the project through,” said Rebecca. “We are also very grateful to Nikki’s Painting and other smaller painting duos and trades that have come in.
“It has been a really good response, there is lots of good will out there and enthusiasm.
“The cause, helping young disadvantaged kids, really speaks for itself. That’s what people respond to.”
