Estate venture to fund needy

A REAL estate venture to raise funds for Christian Outreach Centre and its social justice and natural disaster arm, Global Care, was launched at the weekend.

Hailed as "the blue angels" by city councillor Paul Tully, whose own home was destroyed in last year's floods, Global Care is well known for tireless and dedicated work during natural diasters.

Global Care's Bellbird Chase Estate open day was held at the Christian Outreach Centre Redbank Plains church property in Bellbird Park.

It launched the Bellbird Chase Estate property development which will raise funds for Christian Outreach Centre and Global Care.

Bellbird Chase project manager Matt Flegler said that Bellbird Chase represented some of the best-value real estate in Australia.

"With prices for a four-bedroom house-and-land package around $332,000 and in an exciting area poised to take off like a rocket, we are confident the 38 Bellbird Chase lots will be snapped up quickly," Mr Flegler said.

"We will have Ray White representatives on the site for the open day for early sales.

"We have had a lot of interest already and have only just started marketing the project.

"I have every confidence that this is the future boom area of Australia, evidenced by the launch recently of nearby Ripley Valley, the largest master-planned community in the country."

Cr Tully officially launched the venture inspired by Global Care's work in Ipswich and, especially, Goodna last January.

Paying tribute to Global Care, Cr Tully said: "The angels of Global Care are still delivering blood, sweat and tears to the people of Goodna, clearing away the mud and slush and years of treasured memories."

It was heartbreaking, he said.

Global Care, which was set up by the Christian Outreach Centre in 1996, has been honoured by the governor-general, prime minister, Federal Opposition leader and the premiers of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria for its work with the Kinglake bushfires and the Queensland floods.

The day also included a free sausage sizzle and attractions for kids including a petting zoo, jumping castle and pony rides.
