The Barnhem Refurbishment Project
A couple of years ago we got to know Barrie Buck when he was looking for a worthy cause for his company to help as part of their CSR. He came to visit us and he liked our “home”, our children and our way of doing things, but he also noted the poor condition of the buildings and grounds.
Barrie got in touch with his friend John Grendon and asked him to do a survey of our home and he confirmed that there were a large number of defects that needed to be dealt with and that a complete renovation was urgently needed. At the same time an expansion allowing capacity for more children was desired by the Barnhem board. The renewed Barnhem facility was planned and drawn up by a local architect. The plan called for improvements of the use of the facility, improved infrastructure and improved safety.
These two wonderful gentlemen decided to actually do it, rebuild Barnhem, in order to do so they started the Barnhem Refurbishment Project. Their idea was to get various funds, companies and people involved to get the sponsorship’s and resources needed to fulfill their vision of giving our children a better and safer home.
Here we are! They made it!…And we got a sports center as a bonus!!
