Chas Everitt plans extreme makeover for children’s home

The Chas Everitt International property group is gearing up to give a section of the Durbanville Kinderhuis in Cape Town an extreme makeover in October.


This follows the hugely successful revamp of the Kid’s Haven on the Gauteng East Rand last year and forms part of the group’s community involvement programme.


Group events and client services co-ordinator Tracey Everitt says two semi-detached units housing 28 boys at the Durbanville Kinderhuis have been chosen for this year’s project.


“The project is based on the popular TV series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the units will be completely revamped. Work will include carpentry, retiling bathrooms, replacing sanitary ware, plumbing repairs, painting and soft furnishings. We aim to make the homes functional and comfortable at at the same time bright and cheerful.”


While the project is underway from 14 to 18 October, the children will be treated to a mini holiday in Muizenberg, sponsored by Die Burger newspaper. Other sponsors that have signed up include Nedbank, Cyberagent, Plascon, Betterbond, Dalton Plumbers, Avis and the attorney firms STBB and Dykes Van Heerden. Everitt says the group is currently looking for companies to sponsor carpentry, sanitary ware and tiles.


Chas Everitt International CEO Berry Everitt says the purpose of the company’s home makeover project is not only to change buildings but also to change lives – and in that way to create a cycle of hope and help for others.  “Hard work and generous support from our sponsors will, we hope, make a material difference to the quality of life of the children living in House 11 and House 12 at the Durbanville Kinderhuis.”


A website has been registered under the name and it will track the progress of the project. Everitt says companies interested in taking part as sponsors can also contact the Chas Everitt International head office in Johannesburg on 011 801 2500.
