Peter Bisby, the General Manager at Redink Homes Midwest said “Redink Homes Midwest started in the same year as Charity Begins at Home, and it is so gratifying to think that 6 years later we are partnering with them on such a worthwhile project as the Charity Home in Geraldton Heights. Our local Redink Team are also very excited about the project and all of them are very aware of this most unique charity. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to support a community that has supported us over the last 6 years. I personally look forward to working with the committee on this beautiful home and the funds that it will raise for the benefit of the people who live in this wonderful city.”

Geraldton Heights Estate, located off Webber Road in Moresby is a master planned community that once completed, will be home to 2,500 residential lots, a new town centre, landscaped parks and schools.

Development Manager, Travis Kell, said that, “Geraldton Heights was honoured to be involved in donating the land for such a worthwhile charity, that will give something back to locals in need within the community.”

With humble beginnings back in 2008, Midwest Charity Begins at Home has now raised over $1,072,000 to assist individuals and families in the Midwest community suffering from serious illness such as cancer.

“Having two major fundraisers will allow us to help so many more people in need right here in the Midwest”
