G J Gardner Homes donates to cardiac rehabilitation program

East Grampians Health Service’s cardiac rehabilitation program has benefited from G J Gardner Homes’ Community Growth Program.

Clubs, schools, kindergartens, charities and not-for-profit organisations across the Ararat region, including EGHS, are benefiting from the Community Growth Program, which has been designed to give back to the community.

Any new customer that signs up with G J Gardner Homes can nominate a local organisation or charity that they support and G J Gardner Homes will contribute 0.1% of the contract price to the nominated group on their behalf.

A certificate bearing the customer’s name is also sent to the charity.

Two local residents nominated their funds to go to cardiac rehabilitation at East Grampians Health Service.

The donation will be put towards new equipment for the cardiac rehabilitation program following the redevelopment of the Community Health Centre, from which the program is run.

“We are very grateful to G J Gardener homes’ Sally and Ashley Heard and the home owners for this donation from the Community Growth program,” EGHS chief executive Nick Bush said.

“Sally and Ashley are to be commended for developing this program, which directly benefits local organisations and charities.

“Our cardiac rehabilitation programs are an integral part of the services offered at the Community Health Centre and the donation will be put to good use by the department once the redevelopment of the building has taken place and new equipment sourced.”
