Hands of Compassion

Sponsor: Woolworths Trust

The team from Woolworths staff who came over the two day period where prepared and focused to complete the work that had been planned for them. Once again this was another phenomenal group of staff members,

The weather was touch and go on both days but this didn’t deter the team, who exceeded the original plans.

The work that was planned is as follows:

  • Paint exterior walls of building
  • Replace existing divider between kitchen & serving area
  • Upgrade kitchen

Exceeded expectation

  • Completed all the planned work plus…
  • Painted mural on prominent wall
  • Reputtied most windows
  • Extensive repair work to building structure
  • Painted all window frames (inside & outside
  • Painted all doors
  • Donated clothing
  • More kitchen cupboards were installed than were originally planned
  • Fixed outlet pipe in kitchen sink
  • Fixed hole in ceiling
  • Painted interior walls of building

We received a letter of appreciation from the management of the Hands of Compassion, which read:
