Chief Minister Gallagher has announced the winners from the Master Builders charity house auction:
Chief Minister Katy Gallagher has presented more than $580,000 to five local charities from the proceeds of the sale of the Franklin Charity House.
Franklin Charity House has been a joint project between the ACT Government’s Land Development Agency (LDA), the Master Builders Association (MBA) of the ACT and many Canberra businesses.
“This is a very exciting project and one that will make a significant difference to five Canberra charities who make an essential contribution to our community on a daily basis and it is a pleasure to be able to present these cheques today,” the Chief Minister said.
“The Franklin Charity House project is a great example of how government and the private sector are working together to achieve a great outcome for those groups who work hard to help the vulnerable people in our community.”
The charities to benefit are the YWCA Canberra, YouthCARE Canberra, Canberra Men’s Centre, Inanna and Toora Women, all who assist vulnerable people in our community.
