Op shop needs you

Hauraki-Coromandel Post - - News -

The Cor­ner Stone House be­gan in 1989 by the then Rev Peter Hunn hop­ing to find a place for the Par­ish peo­ple of Whanga­mata to open a com­mu­nity type cen­tre with of­fice fa­cil­i­ties. Restora­tion work be­gan, com­pleted in April 1990 and the cen­tre was opened by the then Bishop of Waikato.

This was fol­lowed by the open­ing of an “op shop” run by a hardy group of vol­un­teer ladies. The in­come raised from this ven­ture has pro­vided on av­er­age $5000 an­nu­ally to wor­thy causes over the years.

The Angli­can op shop now needs your help: they re­quire much well over­due main­te­nance work to be car­ried out to its tired paint work on both roof, walls and in­te­ri­ors.

It’s hoped a garage sale will raise a goodly por­tion of that money re­quired to carry out this re­me­dial work.

From Oc­to­ber 21-24 at 9.30am the house be open at Cor­ner­stone to re­ceive your pre-loved garage sale con­tri­bu­tions and to on sell them. Any man­power along with trail­ers on the day to move equip­ment is re­quired and wel­comed.

Garage sale day Oc­to­ber 24 8am-4pm Labour Week­end.
