Percy Bartley House room challenge

Percy Bartley House is one of our 2019 nominated charities and we are very excited to announce the #PBH #Roomchallenge .

The Percy Bartley room challenge is an initiative that was recently launched which calls for companies to pay it forward by adopting a room and giving it a facelift. 

Our very own IIWC president, Liza Morris & her team at Bryte Insurance have gotten this great initiative started and have completed a room (take a look at the before and after images below).

In the video below Farlane gives insight into what PBH is all about along with the positive impact that they are making in the lives of the boys staying at PBH.

Farlane has gotten colour palettes for the rooms which have been selected by the boys that call PBH home & it is our hope to have the rooms completed before Christmas to really make the holidays special. If you are interested in adopting a room then please let us know.

As the IIWC we challenge our members to select a room & make a difference!

Watch the video to find out more about the #Roomchallenge and what it means to those that call Percy Bartley House home.
