Kara House has recently undergone some well-needed upgrades to its children’s play area. After some wild weather a couple of years back the shade sail covering the play area was lost, leaving no coverage or protection from sun for the children utilising the area. The ground covering was also hardened after many years of use, and the cubby house needed some repairs.
An upgrade to the area with replacement of the shade sail was identified as a key requirement for the refuge by the Kara House Development Committee in 2014. Kara House reached out to the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Foundation, who kindly volunteered to help raise the money to support the required upgrades.
The play area has now had its new shade sail installed, with the ground covered in soft mulch. Repairs to the cubby house have also taken place. The difference has been significant and the residents of the Kara House refuge are greatly appreciative. Future plans for upgrading the play area include new plants and play equipment.
