The business of kindness on Free Trade Day

Picture a world where families struggle without running water, lights, or a secure home.

Where an elderly couple’s kitchen sink blocked up three years ago and the hot water in their bathroom stopped working.

It’s heart-wrenching, but together we can make a difference.

This October, Lions volunteers are calling on compassionate tradespeople to give back to their communities for Free Trade Day – a day that will forever change lives for the better.

Free Trade Day is a Lions Club of Terrigal-Wamberal project connecting tradies who are willing to work for FREE for people doing it tough.

Tradies donate their time to repair damaged homes on Free Trade Day.

It’s an emotional day that highlights the Central Coast’s best tradies, helping their neighbours.

Free Trade Day founder and Lions member Ryan Wilson is now assembling a force of leading trades businesses, united by kindness, to dedicate a day to those in desperate need.

“Free Trade Day is a great opportunity for the trade community to come together and lend a helping hand to those who unfortunately cannot afford to have important repairs and maintenance done on their homes,” says Ryan.

“We have a website where tradies can register their services and people needing help can self register or be nominated by someone else.

We then connect tradies with people who need a helping hand.”

Registration is now open, click here to find out how you can get involved with Free Trade Day on the 20th of October 2023.
