Call out for help to build room for boy with Cerebral Palsy

LAST year Swich On raised $10,000 through a charity golf day for Silkstone's young Blaise Wyatt, who has a severe form of Cerebral Palsy.

Bill Savige from Switch On said not long after the event, Simon's Home Timber and Hardware heard about the worthy cause and decided to jump on board, taking the total to $15,000.

"Our main objective from our golf day was to contribute towards Blaise's treatment room downstairs at his family home," he said.

"However after inspecting the house we realized that affixing the external cladding of the house was paramount to getting it to lock up stage.

"Taking this into account, on Saturday we are looking to have a working bee at Blaise's house to try and complete this work."

Blaise's uncle Andrew is a builder and has been working on the area for a couple of years.

Now Swich On want to find people willing to help him out and get a lot of the external work completed in one day.

Mr Savige said they were looking for carpenters, apprentices, those who can saw and cut chamfer board, people who can saw benches with drop saws and scaffolding to reach a height of 4.5m.

Work will start at 8am and drinks and lunch will be provided by Rotary Club of Ipswich on the day.

All fixings and consumables will be supplied by Simon's Home Hardware and Swich On.

Mr Savige said whether people could help out for one hour or the whole day, any help would be greatly appreciated.
