Case study: PWC Employees put on their gardening gloves
Lauren Power, Michelle Jenkins and Stephen Fern, three of eight volunteers from PricewaterHouse Coopers
Eight Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PWC) auditors left their laptops at the office to lend a hand in the gardens at the Leukaemia Foundation's ESA Village as part of the PWC Foundation volunteer program to assist community organisations.
The Leukaemia Foundation was pleased to welcome the enthusiastic PWC volunteers who worked all day mowing, weeding, raking leaves and general cleaning around the Foundation's patient and family accommodation village.
Leukaemia Foundation Patient Accommodation Manager, Ron Bolton-Wood said, "ESA Village is a large complex which offers 21 fully self-contained units. The facility provides residents with a homely atmosphere with beautiful gardens and outdoor facilities, however, like every home, there is always maintenance," Ron said.
"The volunteers did an exceptional job and we thank them and the PWC Foundation for their enthusiasm and support of patients with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma."
Case study: Goldman Sachs JB Were blitz the backyard at Bassendean!
The first family-sized unit in the Perth suburb of Bassendean, was very happy to be ‘blitzed’ for a weekend by community volunteers from Goldman Sachs JB Were. The volunteers generously donated their time to clean, paint, pave and garden to turn the unit into a comfortable ‘home away from home’ for a 17 year old boy and his family. The boy has lymphoma and relocated with his parents and 2 sisters from the far north of Western Australia while he was undergoing treatment.
