Barry Plant raises nearly $95,000 for Make-A-Wish during “Wishtober”

Every year the Barry Plant Group turns October into “Wishtober”, raising funds for Make-A-Wish Australia – an organisation that grants life-changing wishes to children and teens suffering from serious illness.

During Wishtober every Barry Plant office contributes an amount from the commission from every property sold in the month, with Head Office also contributing to the cause. 

This year they raised $94,780, bringing the total amount raised over the six-year partnership to $673,439.72

When announcing the result, Barry Plant CEO, Mike McCarthy thanked all the franchisees for their incredibly generous support.

“We all know that the past two years have been very challenging and the fact that not once has anyone suggested that we should reduce or abandon the commitment to Make-A-Wish is testimony to the generosity of the entire network.”

The face of the Barry Plant Wishtober campaign this year was Charli, who at six-years-old, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.

Her wish was for a yellow Labrador puppy named Lola. Both Charli and Lola (with Charli’s mum and sister) along with Make-A-Wish staff were at the Barry Plant Head Office for the announcement of the amount raised.
