You would of remembered our last post about the new roof, well this time around we wanted to say thank you to another local business for installing timber flooring in our admin building. Although we did have a temporary fix with a second hand carpet, the timber flooring will provide us with the more permanent solution. Not that we are not satisfied with the carpet fitting but the durability of the timber will give us more options to what we can use the room for. For example for our tap dancing class etc.
We did consider installing it before the temporary fix (carpet), but when we were looking for timber flooring installers in Perth we found out that it was out of reach when you look at the price. Though we completely agree that you get what you pay for. Timber is a very high quality product, so we had no doubt that its a good investment in the long run but we just didn’t have enough funding after spending some of the budgeted amount on other things.
The local business that helped us out reached out after seeing our first post about the burnt roof and the rest is history. They called us up and wondered if they can help out by giving us a discounted price for the timber materials and also, on top of that, they offered us free labour! It’s hard to believe isn’t it? We ask what they wanted in return and their answer was nothing! They wanted to do it to help out the community.. whole heartedly.
After talking a bit more to the business owners, it turned out that both of them had kids who attended our centre in the past! They wanted to show how grateful they are of what we are doing and that their kids are proof that the program does really work.
We are forever grateful for all of the help we’ve received in the last couple of months. People from all walks of life had been very generous.
