Recently we were fortunate enough to be asked to stage the Mitre10 Charity House, raising funds for the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust.
The Otago Rescue Helicopter is ready 24/7 to attend emergencies across the lower South Island providing immediate intensive care and life support to the largest geographical area in New Zealand. Equipped with costly state of the art search and rescue technology, this service is an essential lifeline to people in need.
Once we scratched the surface of just how incredible the trust is and the tireless work they do we wanted to do more than just stage the interior with furniture on loan! With a huge thanks to Luxaflex we were able to donate all of the blinds, we made, hung and donated the curtains using some great fabrics and also left a gorgeous white Karma lounger and footstool behind when we packed up.
We staged the house using some key pieces from our range so we could make it feel like a home and show the potential owners what was possible in the space and it must have worked since the winning bidders have since been in to purchase some of the pieces!
The final figure raised for the charity was in excess of $80 000.00 making it an incredibly successful fundraiser! It was great to get behind a local charity that we all truly believe in and who help people as you never know when we might need them!
