Charity Begins at Home Makes the Finals

At Geraldton Heights Estate, we take pride in offering prime real estate at affordable prices. But we are even prouder of our involvement with the Geraldton-based charity, Charity Begins at Home.

In 2014, we donated a house and land package in cooperation with RedInk Homes to Charity Begins at Home. It was going to be auctioned off but a keen buyer made a preemptive bid before the auction was even started. Charity Begins at Home decided to accept the bid and all parties concerned were exceedingly happy with the outcome.

Charity Begins at Home provides financial relief for people who come down with serious illnesses and their families. Most of their funds are raised by holding an annual gala in which donated merchandise and services from local businesses are auctioned off.

Charity Begins at Home is a special charity in which no money collected goes into administration. All of the staffing is on a volunteer basis: people giving back to the community. The gala dinner does have to pay the costs of catering, entertainment, equipment hire, hall hire and alcohol but local businesses also donate many of these items, lowering the cost of the Gala even further.

That is great news because it means more money goes where it is supposed to go: to people in need. All of the money stays right here in the Mid West, to people right here in the community.

Recently, Charity Begins at Home made the finals of the Telstra Business Awards in WA. The awards recently added a charity division, making it possible for Charity Begins at Home to be recognised for the great work they do for our community.

The other finalists are Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia, Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA and Telethon Adventurers.

We would like to congratulate Charity Begins at Home for the recognition of what they do for our community.
