BOICO Harmonee House gets a new coat of paint

With the help of generous volunteers and donations, Bay of Isles Community Outreach today started repainting their Harmonee House in Nulsen.

Harmonee House provides a safe space for people battling with mental illness to develop friendships and learn new skills.

Esperance Bunnings and Taubmans provided the paint and tools, as well as extra hands, to repaint the house ahead of its relaunch in October.

Harmonee House facilitator Rob Smith said the aim was to create a more vibrant and welcoming space.

“It helps get our participants out of their four walls and into a place where they can just forget about everything for a little while,” he said.

“We have total a budget of $0 – it’s being done by volunteers and donations.

“Our community has shown that the spirit of lending a hand to those in need is not something we have lost here in Esperance.”

“Bunnings Esperance, with the support of Taubmans Australia, have graciously turned the painting of the house into a training exercise

Work started at midday today, June 21, and is expected to wrap up on Friday.
