House of Hope Launch

August 10, 2020 by tasadmin

The House of Hope 2020 project has been launched!

Variety Tasmania CEO Mohammad Aldergham said funds raised by the sale of the House of Hope will go to Variety Tasmania and Cancer Council Tasmania’s Rachel & Jye Fund.

“The House of Hope 2020 is project being developed through the generosity of Craig Rogerson,  Andrew Lyden and Andrew Clifford,” Mr Aldergham said.

“The House of Hope will be a 3-bedroom house, situated in Glebe Hill Estate. Eligible Tasmanians can take advantage of the Government Grants if they move quickly to purchase the house. Plus, they would be supporting vulnerable Tasmanian children and their families.”

Mr Aldergham said Variety was seeking local business support for the construction of the House of Hope with building materials, fittings and labour.

“The House of Hope is located in the beautiful Glebe Hill Estate, which has landscaped streets, open spaces, playgrounds, a junior soccer oval and an amphitheatre, with walking tracks up the Glebe Hill, which is a 17-hectare Conservation area).

“We believe the House of Hope, just eight minutes from the centre of Hobart, will attract great interest from potential purchasers.”

Mr Aldergham said because of COVID0-19, both Variety Tasmania and Cancer Council Tasmania had suffered in relation to their funding streams.

“The funds raised by the sale of the House of Hope will greatly assist Variety, which is a self-funded, events-based children’s charity, and has suffered a 70% drop in revenue in the past three months.”

Cancer Council Tasmania CEO Penny Egan said 90% of the organisation’s funding came from donations by the Tasmanian public.

“We are extremely pleased to participate in this project with Variety Tasmania,” Mrs Egan said.

“We will use any funds raised towards the Rachel & Jye Fund, which supports families when a child (18 years or younger) has a cancer diagnosis or relapse, including the cost of interstate travel for treatment.”
