THE Salvation Army’s Harry Hunter Rehabilitation Centre in Gosnells got a massive helping hand in a recent busy bee.

Volunteers from Dale Alcock businesses converged on the centre recently to construct a new gazebo, renovate the centre’s recreation room and touch up the Garden of Hope.

Dale Alcock Homes general manager Cameron Lade said the 60 volunteers had been eager to get their hands dirty for a good cause.

“This was by far our biggest and busiest busy bee yet,” he said.

“Our happy band of volunteers set to tackling a variety of tasks, from giving the rec room a total makeover, to weeding the garden beds, refilling the sandpit and building the new gazebo from the ground up.

“This truly was a combined effort, made all the more special by the incredible sense of team spirit and cooperation as staff embraced the opportunity to giveback to the community.”

Bunnings volunteers also joined in with the tasks, including building a pizza oven.

The Salvation Army’s Warren Palmer said they were grateful for the support.

“Together, we are transforming the lives of the most vulnerable in our community and it was so inspiring to see so many volunteers working tirelessly for the benefit of others,” he said.

“The work they have achieved will improve client’s experiences at our rehabilitation centre significantly.”
