Contributors to the Building Love campaign have had a first look at a sample family unit on site at the new Ronald McDonald House Westmead this June.
Gathering at the new Ronald McDonald House Westmead construction site on 13 June, 2017, more than 70 representatives from businesses across Sydney joined FDC Construction & Fit-Out to take a tour and view the progress to date.
Included was a “display” unit on level one, giving an insight into just how one of the 15 self-contained family units will look once construction is complete. The finished House will also include 45 other studio and 2-bedroom family units to cater for more than 1,300 families of all sizes each calendar year.*
Along with Government, corporate and community donations, the Building Love campaign has also seen businesses contribute goods, services and expertise to minimise costs on the project and bring the dream of an expanded Ronald McDonald House Westmead closer to a reailty.
“The purpose of the tour was to thank each of the organisations that has contributed to the campaign so far,” said Ronald McDonald House Westmead Chairman, Ray Finn.
“Whether they’ve given their time and labour, engineering services, furniture or materials, we wouldn’t have reached this point without their support.”
“I hope as they toured the House and began to see just how it will come to life, they also felt pride in their own contributions to the Building Love campaign.”
