Women shelter charity event an overwhelming success

Women shelter charity event an overwhelming success!

On Saturday in the town of Collingwood “My Friends House” a women shelter held a charity event to help raise money for the ongoing operation of the very successful shelter.

It was called “Walk a mile in her shoes” and it turned out to be a smashing success.

They were able to raise over $28,000.00.

Walk a mile in her shoes is a charity event that men walk 1 mile in red high heel shoes, it is to help raise awareness to help stop women abuse.

Village Builders employee Peter Heron was the lucky guy that did the walk this year for the whole company. Peter was quiet the sight in a pair of black high heel shoes and camouflage jacket.

The men walked right down the main street of Collingwood, they definitely stopped traffic and had more than a few onlookers in shock.

Peter’s legs even made the local news cast, to bad Peter didn’t shave them first!

We would like to thank Peter for doing this, this charity along with a couple of other ones are very close to the heart of Village Builders.

If you would like to donate or participate next year please feel free to email are financial controller Ursula Abbott at and she will give you all the information that you require.
