Tomkinson Group has been pleased to be a part of the journey from permit to completion for Kez’s Hideaway – a beautiful country homestead built in memory of Kerry Gray for the OTIS foundation.
Tomkinson Group contributed their services in areas of Planning and Surveying for the homestead, completed in 2016. Built in Redesdale as a special retreat available at no cost for women living with breast cancer, the homestead has been constructed by Paul Gray from Paul Gray Builders, in memory of his wife Kerry (Kez), on land donated through the generosity of the Campbell family in Redesdale, and furnished through donations from the team at Jimmy Possum.
Kerry Gray was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and sadly passed away four years later in 2011 at age 39. Encouraged by Kerry, Paul Gray embarked upon the vision for a retreat for women with breast cancer, and in conjunction with The OTIS Foundation and the local community, this vision has now become a reality.
The OTIS Foundation provides retreats for anyone living with the challenges of breast cancer at no accommodation charge. They provide retreats in Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. Friends, family and partners are also welcome at the retreats.
Tomkinson Group would encourage anyone experiencing the effects of breast cancer in their lives to contact The Otis Foundation and arrange a retreat at Kez’s Hideaway, or one of their many beautiful properties.
