For years Cedarwood Buildings have been donating to local charities and one of the best ways they do it, is by making amazing cubby houses for raffles.

Their first cubby house was built in 2009 for the Camden Show.

Ben Cooley and Michael Buda used to build the cubby house on site at the show on the Friday ready to raffle off on the Saturday, however due to the use of power tools and liability they had to stop building onsite from 2012.

Now the carpenters and other tradesman build the cubby house off site and deliver to the show on Friday.

This year’s cubby house is raising money for an ECG Machine for the Palliative Care unit at Camden Hospital, costing around $30,000.

“Each year at the show it is a privilege to talk with and spend time with the lovely men and women of the auxiliary and I particularly like it when they bring scones,” Mr Cooley said.

“When I was in hospital the Pet therapy people came to visit, it was really nice to see firsthand what we have raised money for,” Mr Buda said.

Mr Buda is delighted that each year, more and more local trades are coming forward to contribute to the cubby house including painting, gutters, screen door and windows, electrical, kitchen and even a clothesline.

“A special mention to Camden Mitre 10 and Hayters Timber and Hardware who have been with us on the cubby house journey from the first year,” he said.

Established 1998, Cedarwood Building Pty Ltd is a local builder of extensions, renovations, and new homes. In 2011, it merged with Greg McGrath to form McGrath Builders and Cedarwood Homes, raising a total of $105,339 to date.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the many women and men of the auxiliary over the years.  Be it in the rain, mud, heat or wind, we are all out there on the Friday and Saturday selling tickets,” Mr Buda said.

Tickets are currently on sale in front of Blooms and Barenz in the main street of Camden, and in person at the Show $2 each or 3 for $5.

100% of money raised goes to the Camden Auxiliary.
