In­vestor gets a warm welcome at old school

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

PERTH prop­erty in­vestor Tim Guest has gone back to his old school to do­nate win­ter uni­forms to the stu­dents.

Mr Guest lives in South Perth but grew up in Gos­nells and wanted to help out af­ter hear­ing Gos­nells Pri­mary School stu­dents could not af­ford win­ter uni­forms.

The 37-year-old has be­come one of the State’s lead­ing young in­vestors and en­trepreneurs, af­ter own­ing 13 prop­er­ties and re­tir­ing as a multi-mil­lion­aire at just 27.

He heard about a pro­gram from vol­un­teer char­ity Manna Inc, who help serve the home­less and hun­gry.

Mr Guest said some of the stu­dents lived in tough en­vi­ron­ments.

“They were awe­some,” he said.

“I guess for them it doesn’t re­ally seem that big of a deal; it’s just what they have to deal with ev­ery day.”
