JOHN Kirwin-Ward has been a long-time supporter of Conquer Cystic Fibrosis – but his latest project could benefit any child.

Mr Kirwin-Ward, whose granddaughter Kaila has CF, has handcrafted a child’s play kitchen for West Australian organisation Conquer Cystic Fibrosis to auction and raise money to help find a cure for the illness.

The kitchen has been fashioned from a television cabinet and other upcycled household materials.

It includes hotplates, a dishwasher, sink, microwave, curtains and ample storage cupboards.

“We’re thrilled to have been given this most amazing kid’s play kitchen to auction for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis,” committee member Susan Andrews said.

“The attention to detail is incredible – from the CD ‘hotplates’ to the silver painted microwave and the gingham apron.”

“This is a dream come true for any budding young chef or any child who just likes to play grown up.”

Ms Andrews said the play kitchen could suit a playgroup, kindy, café, community centre or a lucky child’s bedroom.

Money raised by Conquer Cystic Fibrosis is donated to CF research and services.
