In a gesture of community spirit, B&D Doors Australia has contributed to the building of a project house which supports children and families suffering from rare diseases.
Organised by the Steve Waugh Foundation, the house was named The Renee after the Foundation's ambassador Renee Eliades, who suffers from a rare form of dwarfism.
The Renee, which was built in the Charterwood Estate on NSW's central coast, was developed in a partnership between the Steve Waugh Foundation, AV Jennings and a number of other construction suppliers, including B&D Doors.
The Renee was sold at auction in late February, generating $420,000 for the Foundation.
These funds will be used to pay for support, medication, specialised treatment and financial support to children and families suffering from rare diseases.
It was constructed with the principle of meeting the needs of people of different ages and abilities over its useful life. It features four bedrooms, a double garage and modern fittings.
B&D's contribution to The Renee was fitment of a Panelift™ garage door, with automatic opener. The door was supplied in the colour Paperbark to complement the property's brick and weatherboard cladding.
B&D Doors sponsors a number of good causes in the community with supply of its products, and national sales and marketing manager John Fraser-Mifsud said the company is very proud to have helped with the construction of The Renee.
"The Steve Waugh Foundation is such a great cause, and B&D is happy to be contributing to the improvement of the lives of people affected by rare diseases," Mr Fraser-Mifsud said.
"We trust that the Panelift™ door will give many years of reliable service to the new owners."
The successful bidder was property developer Peter Johnson, the creator of the Charterwood Estate subdivision.
