The first stage completion of the House of St Hilarion development at Seaton, costing $30 million, was financed through multiple sources, including bank debt and fundraising contributions. By the time we completed this first phase in 2010, which provides for 109 beds, over $2 million had been secured through fundraising.
In addition to contributing to our Stage 1 development, our current fundraising will enable us to purchase new health & medical equipment for the benefit of residents and staff at Fulham and Seaton, while we are also saving for stage 2 expansion & creation of additional 34 bed places at Seaton.
Today, our fundraising efforts are focused in the following main areas:
In addition to raising much needed funds, we look at fundraising as a great way to extend our community involvement, by connecting with local businesses and their staff, and by providing volunteers of all ages the opportunity to work with others for an important cause, while having fun and meeting new friends and developing business and social networks.
