The House That Convoy Built Breaks Ground
Sheargold, a major sponsor of the 198FM Illawarra Convoy, generously donated a home site in the Grove at Vista Park with the vision to build a house for auction and the proceeds to go to the Illawarra Community Foundation.
Despite delays due to Covid-19, ground was broken late in August for this incredible new home. This milestone marks a culmination of a huge amount of work by a lot of passionate people behind the scenes, and GJGardner Homes doing the actual build.
Sheargold is incredibly proud to have a contributing role in this truly worthwhile cause and we are excited to watch this journey. You too, can see the progress at www.convoyhouse.com.au
