3monkeez Participates in Hardys Plumbtec Pakenham Trade Night

The Hardy’s Plumbtec trade night was held on 30th May 2012. Ross Fichera, 3monkeez State Sales Manager for Victoria and Tasmania stated “It was an excellent run event and full credit to Matt Celima and his staff to stage a great night. It was a pleasure to be a part of the 50 suppliers invited to show their products and wares in front of almost 200 customers. The highlight of the night was the guest speaker, Jason Bright, V8 supercar driver for BOC Racing and his car was also on display.”

The 3monkeez trade stand drew a lot of comment amongst the crowd. With limited space, unfortunately all of our product range could not be shown. Ross had many items on display. Among these were 3monkeez new release pedestal pans (stainless steel toilets), our floor waste range, our Scraptrap range, our channel and grate in which we had 3 different profiles displayed, square bar, wedge wire (also known as sure screen) and our patented non slip square bar using non slip carborundum, and more.

 

A big tick again to Hardys Plumbtec Pakenham.

Andrew at the Vinnies CEO Sleep Out

3monkeez CEO Andrew Russell participated in annual Vinnies CEO Sleep Out on Thursday 21st June 2012 at the Carriageworks in Redfern NSW.

Andrew raised $6050 for the event which will go toward helping the homeless in Australia.

There were over 1000 CEO’s in Australia who particpated in the event and together they raised over $5 million.

For Andrew, the experience has emphasised that homelessness really is unacceptable, and that it is society’s responsibility to bring about change. There is still time to make a lasting social investment and you can begin by sponsoring me.

Donation can still be made until 31st August 2012.

Thank you for your support

3monkeez Donates to HopeStreet’s Back Shed Cafe

3monkeez have just donated a knee operated hand basin to HopeStreet’s Back Shed Cafe. Upon learning from the local council that they required a hands free basin in their premises, George, from HopeStreet found 3monkeez and we were more than happy to help.

HopeStreet is a registered charity, that has been operating in Woolloomooloo/ Darlinghurst for approximately 20 years. The cafe – called the Back Shed Cafe, is at the heart of what we do. It sits in Tom Uren Square where currently 60 rough sleepers bed down each night. Nearby, is the Mathew Talbot Hostel, where about another 100 homeless men sleep in dormitory accommodation.

The cafe is a really inclusive gathering hub for the homeless & marginalised community that call the area home. Loneliness, is often the most crippling of all human challenges, and in this little cafe the atmosphere is one of compassion, inclusiveness and empowerment. The cafe also also acts as a kind of interface between staff and the local community. The usual structures in social welfare organisations, of appointments, waiting rooms, talking to clients behind screens is done away with in this space. The cafe represents a really organic, natural way for relationships to occur, and it is out of these relationships, that people may tell us their needs and assistance can be offered.

Although overseen by HopeStreet staff, the cafe runs largely by volunteers sourced from within the local community. Below are some photos, that try and capture the vibe of the place, and the progress of the makeover.

“On behalf of HopeStreet, I really want to extend a huge thanks for your kind donation to our cafe makeover. I do sincerely thank you. We hadn’t budgeted for a hands free wash basin – not realising that it was a Council regulation, and your donation really helps us out big time.”

“On behalf of HopeStreet, I really want to extend a huge thanks for your kind donation to our cafe makeover. The knee operated hands free basin arrived TODAY & it is fantastic! THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU”
