A very special weekend.
Last month (May) Streetworks did a massive three-day combined effort with INCEDO, Junior youth group of Fairfield, Gateway Youth, and many more for the ‘MOVE THAT BUS – Whare Makeover’ projects in Tauwhare. This was done for a very special whanau in need who have been struggling with some major health issues and their humble home was in need of some serious TLC. The family kept this project a secret from their parents and arranged for them to be away for the three days so they had no idea a Whare Makeover was taking place!! This project saw the completion of such jobs as re-fencing the entire property; Reconfiguring and renovating toilet, laundry and bathroom; Building safer decks and ramps instead of stairs; Removal of unused doors and replacing ranch sliders and windows; Reframing walls, recladding and putting up hardies weatherboard; Re-concreting posts; Replacing a bath; Electrical work; Painting interior walls and ceiling.
Needless to say – at the big reveal, there were plenty of tears, disbelieve, shaking hands and hugs.
