Deakin Charity House

Published on 08 November 2016

The Master Builders Association of the ACT and the Land Development Agency partnered with Renaissance Homes to deliver a new Charity House Project for 2016.

In one of, if not the largest donations to community organisations in Canberra history, over $2.2m was raised from the sale of the two Deakin properties, and the proceeds will be donated to three local Canberra charities. The charities are Canberra’s Boundless all-abilities playground, Hands Across Canberra and Hartley Lifecare

On Saturday 5 November, Peter Blackshaw Manuka auctioned 63 and 65 Buxton St Deakin with the combined sale of the homes totalling $3,025,000.00 with approximately $800,000 spent to build and market the project leaving in excess of $2,200,000.00 to be distributed to local charities supporting people with a disability.

Thank you to everyone involved in this wonderful project showing the power of governments, business and the community working together.
