McKern Steel has been supplying steel free of charge to the Charity Home Auction since its inception 30 years ago. This year, we were once again proud to support this fantastic cause.

The 2024 Good Friday Appeal Charity Home Auction was a record-breaking success, raising an incredible $1,110,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Located in Tarneit. the auction saw a stunning Henley Home sell for the record-breaking price to proud new owners Mohish and Sonam – they said they knew at the first inspection this would be their home.

The home was built by Henley Homes alongside Villawood Properties, with over 100 tradies and suppliers who donated their time or services free of charge.

The proceeds from the auction go towards improving the health of Royal Children’s Hospital patients. McKern Steel is proud to have played a role in helping to raise over $20 million for the Royal Children’s Hospital since 1993. It’s hard to believe the very first house Henley built for this charity in 1993 sold for $136,500!

“We are so proud to be a part of this important event,” said Michael McKern, Managing Director.

“The Royal Children’s Hospital provides such outstanding care for so many sick children and their families, and we are honoured to be able to support their work.”

The Good Friday Appeal is one of Australia’s largest fundraising events. It is held every year on Good Friday and raises money for the Royal Children’s Hospital. The Royal Children’s Hospital is a world-class paediatric care facility that provides treatment for sick and injured children from all over Victoria.

“We often think of money raised as lifesaving, but we also know the money helps further research and buy equipment that makes children’s experiences much more comfortable. From vein finding technology to UV lamps, it’s heartening to know that we are helping to provide advanced comfort to families when they need it most.” Said Antony Blackshaw – CEO Henley Properties Group.

McKern Steel is a proud supporter of the Good Friday Appeal and is committed to helping with positive health and wellbeing outcomes for children in Victoria. Congratulations to all involved in the 2024 Good Friday Appeal Home Auction.
