Simonds Homes partner with Flinders Foundation
Simonds Homes is delighted to announce its partnership with Flinders Foundation and looks forward to working alongside their team to raise money through the sale of a new Simonds home.
Located on Rhind Road in Lightsview, close to the Adelaide CBD, the new home will be sold at auction, with all profits to be donated to the Playground Project to support the construction of a new play area outside of the Flinders Paediatric Unit at the Flinders Medical Centre.
For over 70 years, Simonds has been helping Aussie families get into their own homes. Through this partnership and others like it across the country, we strive to extend our support to more families and communities, particularly those who need it the most. We look forward to working with the team at Flinders Foundation to make their vision for the new children’s outdoor area a reality and hope that through it families will be able to enjoy spending time together in a positive, safe and fun environment.
“When my Grandfather Gary Simonds, started the business 7 decades ago, he recognised the importance of putting families first by providing quality, affordable housing. So, we are proud to be continuing his vision by supporting an organisation that has done so much to support families across South Australia. By ensuring funding to support clinicians and researchers from both the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University the Foundation's impact is significant and we are proud to be able to support such a great cause” – Rhett Simonds, Simonds Group CEO.
