Solar panel installation
Thanks again to the Stronger Communities Grant program and the generous commitment of funds by Rotary groups in Boroondara, Servants is about to embark on its second solar installation, this time at Carrical House! The project is underway, with an expected completion in late 2019 – early 2020. We are excited to be moving our houses towards greater environmental responsibility and sustainability.
Painting and Recarpeting at Carrical
Thanks to generous philanthropic funding, the communal spaces at Carrical will be painted and recarpeted by December 2019. A fresh coat of paint and carpet will give new life to the spaces.
Paul, our resident in room 13 has been living with us for 12 years. When an elderly resident moved on to an aged care facility, Paul was happy to move to his slightly bigger room. This allows us to do a complete refurbishment of the old and tired room Room 13 and have a sparkling room ready to welcome a new resident, complete with a new quilt from the Patchwork and Quilter’s Guild.
LED light replacements
In our push to reduce energy consumption and electricity bills, we are going to be replacing the lights at Carrical with LED lights. This has also been made possible by the Stronger Communities Grant program.
