Campell River volunteers practice for the Handyman Gold

Time to get your tools ready for the fifth Annual Handyman Challenge

Time to get your tools ready for the fifth Annual Handyman Challenge to support the Campbell River Head Injury Support Society (CRHISS).

Are you affected from the storm? Maybe this can help. This “Fun”draiser involves volunteer teams building garden/storage sheds, greenhouses and playhouses, as well as other smaller items such as deck furniture, lawn items or planters. The building starts Saturday, June 2 and finishes up on Sunday June 3.  Projects remain on public display at Robert Ostler Park for a week and on Sunday, June 9 where they will be sold by live auction starting from $1,200. Teams, couples or individuals can still pre-register for the competition by contacting the CRHISS office.

Every year CRHISS is continuously amazed by the support from individuals, clubs and businesses in the community. They couldn’t do this event without them.  Basic building materials are provided through donations and the builders are encouraged to add improvements such as windows to personalize and enhance the value of their shed. Teams are also encouraged to obtain donations such as merchandise and gift certificates to add extra value to their shed package.  Independent judges will consider quality, value, and appearance before awarding the Golden Hammer to the best shed.  Prize packages will be announced as soon as they are confirmed and will include great stuff for Gold, Silver, Bronze and Infamous Rusty Hammer winners. Last year the sheds were high quality and they are expected to be again this year. In most cases delivery to the purchaser’s home will be included.

June is Head Injury Awareness month so we will also have information available about preventing head injuries and the effects of an injury on the survivor, their family, and the community.
