AN impressive list of more than 80 businesses have contributed their time, labour and goods to complete the Peter’s Project Charity House.
The house is due to be auctioned at 10am on March 28, with all money going towards the Peter’s Project Foundation.
Bryan and Petersen area manager Andy Austen said the response at open home weekends had been great so far.
“It’s been brilliant,” he said.
“It has all been positive feedback. It makes it all worthwhile and reinforces why we did it. We can’t thank the tradies and suppliers enough for their generours donations and time.”
Mr Austen also thanked Bryan and Petersen director Ron Farquahar who hosted drinks for the contributors, along with Jon Watson from the Lady Bay Resort, last week.
Peter’s Project Foundation director Vicki Jellie said Mr Austen was a tireless worker when it came to ensuring the charity house was completed.
“Andy had this passion and idea and made the whole thing happen,” she said.
“Without his drive it would never have eventuated. He has breathed and dreamed it for the past 18 months and really needs a big pat on the back — not that he wants one at all.”
The public will be able to view the four-bedroom property at 24 Wangoom Road, Warrnambool, today and tomorrow between 1pm-4pm.
