Support for House of Grace

The Trustees agreed at their February meeting to support the Rotary Club of Johnsonville’s project to upgrade the heating facilities at the House of Grace home in Newlands. The Trustees have agreed to fund a new gas central heating system at a cost of $15743 excl GST. The Rotary Club had employed qualified engineers to scope the project and had also invested considerable funds in improving the heating of the building. The funding allocated by JCT should prove to be a boon for staff, new mothers and their babies especially during the damp cold winters.
