Wide Span Sheds national sales and marketing manager, James Folwell, was touched by Audrey’s story, which was aired on Channel 9’s A Current Affair. “Audrey’s story was very compelling and really brought home how unfair and short life can be. There was a real sense of compassion from the Wide Span Sheds’ management team after watching the segment, and we all wanted to help in someway. “Audrey’s one wish was to have the perfect family home … a legacy of her for her family. They brought an old house and then various businesses pitched in to help make it the perfect home. We added our touch with a premium quality steel shed,” said Mr Folwell. Brought together by Channel 9’s A Current Affair, businesses throughout Australia generously donated their products, services and time to help grant Audrey’s wish.
