Celebrating the Community Behind the ‘Building Hope’ Project

Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney and over a hundred of their suppliers celebrated the launch of the ‘Building Hope’ project at Merchant Bar & Kitchen in Albany on Thursday 14th March.

The ‘building hope’ project is an initiative that will result in a brand-new home being built to raise funds for Cure Kids, New Zealand’s largest charitable funder of child health research.

The one-off build is being led by Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney and supported by over 50 of their suppliers who have donated materials and time at either cost, and in some cases for free.

The idea to build a home for Cure Kids was borne after Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney franchisees Debbie and Paul Brett heard about the work Cure Kids does from their Project Manager Jon Copeland. Jon is the father of Cure Kids’ child ambassador, Corin.

Corin attended the launch event along with five other Cure Kids’ ambassadors who shared their experiences living with serious health conditions and highlighted the importance of Cure Kids’ research.

Merchant Bar & Kitchen generously provided all the food and refreshments at the launch party and pledged to support the Building Hope project by catering all milestone events throughout the project.

Cure Kids is overwhelmed by the support and generosity of Landmark Homes and their suppliers and was delighted to come together to celebrate and thank everyone involved.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and lay strong foundations for a brighter future for children who live with life-impacting and life-limiting health conditions,” says Frances Benge.
