Methven Care Trust unveils signs

Sue van den Heuvel - Friday, February 03, 2017

Release date: 8 November 2016

Methven Care Trust has unveiled two fundraising signs in the centre of Methven to update the community on progress towards meeting the $5million target to rebuild Methven House.

Thanks to Supervalue owners Kelly and Don McDonald and Four Square owners Garry and Lynn Eddington, signs have been erected on the side of Methven's two supermarkets.  A graphic of the proposed new rest home - made up of $10K bricks - shows the total amount needed.  So far nearly $420,000 has been raised so those bricks are coloured orange.  As funds increase, the bricks will change colour providing transparent reporting on fundraising progress.  The sign was created by Janine Peters from Designamite and the framing and casing work contributed by Harvey Grieve as a Methven Lions project.  Further donors provided materials and additional labour and Methven Care Trust thanks all parties involved in helping us build and install the signs.

Don't forget the trust's Methven and Foothills House & Garden tour is on next weekend, Saturday 19th November.  Tickets can be purchased from the Methven and Ashburton Isites right up to the day.  Nine properties in and around Methven will be open for viewing - all new properties compared to last year's tour.  The event provided a wonderful excuse to enjoy gorgeous local gardens and properties, with all funds raised going to the trust.  Devonshire teas and a fantastic raffle will be on sale at one property so be sure to bring cash.

In tandem with the house and garden tour, the trust is repeating last year's successful rock fundraiser.  Alpine sourced greywacke rocks and limestone versions are on sale now at KT's Contracting on Line Road (ranging in cost from $50 to $400).  Example rocks will be showcased at one property on the house and garden tour.  These make perfect Christmas or special occasion gifts and free delivery is offered to addresses within 7km of Methven.
