Charity beings at homes seminar
Peninsula personal finance and home buyer advocates are teaming up to provide practical advice while raising funds for families in need. A First Home Buyer’s Seminar on Sunday 29 May in Seaford will offer helpful guidance for first home buyers while raising funds for peninsula-based charityMums Supporting Families in Need.
Husband-and- wife team Carl and Jo Violeta of Violeta Finance are partnering with Budgeting123 budgeting coach Fay Chan and Buyers Home Base director Julie DeBondt-Barker to offer insights into how to navigate home ownership budgeting and plan for a successful entry into the buyers’ market.
Mortgage and finance broker Carl Violeta grew up in The Philippines, where he developed an early appreciation for the pressures of daily expenses and the importance of supporting one another as community.“ I know what it means to struggle to get ahead, and just how complex it is to understand opportunities for families to realise their dream of owning a home,” he said Run by volunteer staff, Mums Supporting Families in Need provides quality second-hand equipment and furnishings like cots, car seats, toys and nappies to families in crisis. Donna Cartwright of MumsSupporting Families in Need is delighted that the First Home Buyers’ Seminar team has chosen to support the organisation “Donations from this workshop help us ensure children and families on the peninsula have their basic daily needs met, and raises our profile so that we can help mums who are struggling,” she said.
