The Gordon Rescue 2018

This year's Rescue was our biggest and best yet! With partner bay 93.9 and a host of generous sponsors, we completed an awesome backyard make-over for Gemma and Josh Berry from Hamlyn Heights.

Unfortunately, since their youngest son was diagnosed with cancer, weekly trips to the Royal Children's Hospital have kept them super busy and out of the garden. The Gordon's horticulture department came to the rescue, and the Berry's now have a lovely child friendly backyard for their boys to play in.  

Her wishlist included a level grassed playing area for ther boys (4 and 6 years old), some easy care flora around the garden edges, a washing line, and a flat parking area on the side of the house.

Wow did we deliver!!




Projects like this would not be possible without the support and generosity of some amazing local businesses.  Please support the following sponsors whenever you can and mention The Gordon Rescue - it all helps us to keep delivering fabulous projects like this in the future!
