For real estate agency Nelson Alexander, it’s important to give back to the community they work in. One of the ways they do this is by supporting the RCH.
“The RCH has a special place in my heart, as my son had cancer and we spent a lot of time at the hospital. They tried all sorts of treatments, but unfortunately at the age of nine he lost his fight. So I’m passionate about giving back to the RCH and helping children and their families live a better life,” said Auctioneer Fabian Rosin.
Nelson Alexander supports local charities through monthly grants and Foundation Day, where each office donates the professional fees from a particular auction to their chosen charity. This year the RCH Foundation received $17,887 from the auction of 32 Rae Street in Fitzroy North. It supported the RCH Gatehouse Centre, a Centre Against Sexual Assault that provides assessment, treatment and advocacy services for children and young people affected by sexual abuse.
“We love to support causes that our colleagues are passionate about, and in some way we’ve all been touched by the RCH. It’s a pleasure to help the many children and families that rely on the hospital’s care,” Kerryn Donchi, Client Relations for Nelson Alexander.
