B&D Garage Doors and Openers participated in the fundraising efforts to help deliver much-needed medical equipment to a regional hospital.

B&D Doors dealer Mount Gambier Macsheds/ThomsonBilt and fitters South East Erections contributed a B&D garage door and opener to a Lions Club project home being built to raise funds to buy a CT scanner for Naracoorte Health Service. The Mount Gambier B&D dealer is supplying a Panelift garage door in the colour Iron Stone and a Controll-A-Door opener for the double garage of the Naracoorte Lions CT House Project. 

Naracoorte Lions Club plans to auction off the house when it is completed by the end of 2013. Combined with proceeds from other fundraisers, the club is hoping to raise a total of $800,000 for the purchase of the scanner and required amenities.

Ross Gleeson, former President of the Naracoorte Lions Club and project coordinator, said that the project is a result of many businesses and individuals in the community coming together to contribute to a good cause. Several elements of the build including the hardware, conveyancing, build supervision, accounting, solicitation, drafting, gyprocking, concrete, electrics and kitchen were supplied either without charge, or were heavily discounted.

Macsheds/ThomsonBilt proprietor Leon Thomson said that his business, as well as Darryl and Craig Pearce from South East Erections like to help out communities when they can, and believe the CT scanner will benefit the people of Naracoorte and surrounding areas greatly.

B&D Doors supports a number of good causes in local communities through the donation of its products; National sales and marketing manager John Fraser-Mifsud said the company is very proud to have helped with the construction of the Naracoorte Lions CT House Project.
