SHEARGOLD DONATES LAND TO ILLAWARRA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Sheargold have become a major sponsor of the i98FM Illawarra Convoy by donating a block of land in The Grove at Vista Park for the House that Convoy built initiative. The ICF distributes funds raised by the Convoy to families and individuals affected by life threatening illnesses in the community, along with donations to many local charitable groups.
Some of the many notable donations provided by ICF have been funds for new ultrasound equipment for Shellharbour Hospital, a new transport vehicle for blood cancer patients, $250,000 towards Wollongong Public Hospital’s Children’s Ward, and many individual donations to families who are suffering financially due to potentially life threatening illnesses.
A house will be built and once completed, the house and land will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to the ICF. Find out more by visiting the dedicated mini site here:
In 1962 Roy Sheargold was a founding member of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA). Continuing to fly the torch from his grandfather’s legacy, this year Sheargold’s Managing Director, Michael Sheargold, has been appointed the NSW President of UDIA, one of the youngest people appointed to this prestigious position. This is a progression for Michael from sitting on the Council in 2016, and NSW Secretary in 2017, and a reflection of the high esteem in which he is held within the industry.
Needless to say, we here at Sheargold, are all immensely proud of Michael.
VISTA PARK, WONGAWILLI – PARK NOW OPEN
Sheargold are delighted to announce that our new parkland in The Grove, Vista Park is now open to the public.
Local residents have been watching the progress carefully and are now extremely happy to be able to enjoy the amenities, which include play equipment for a wide range of ages, electric barbecue facilities and sheltered eating areas, as well as a selection of iconic mining artefacts from the nearby Wongawilli coal mine, just a stones throw from where they once were used and now have been carefully and meticulously restored for the community to cherish.
Sheargold are proud to be able to provide the residents of Vista Park with what we feel is another step in our vision of delivering inspiring spaces for current and future generations.
