Otago Polytechnic Charity House raised $115,000 for Otago community groups at the 15th edition of the Annual Charity House auction. 🙌
Each year, Otago Polytechnic carpentry learners build a four-bedroom house with guidance from their lecturers and generous support from many local businesses.
This project is an excellent example of the hands-on learning approach and shows how OP students make a better world.
The fully-furnished four-bedroom house was sold for $365,000 on 20th November, breaking the previous record sale of $325,000 in 2020.
Catalytic Foundation (formerly United Way NZ) will soon distribute these funds to frontline community charities in Otago.
