TIME is fast running out to be a part of this year’s Christmas Miracle project, with the 2015 winner urging people to get involved.

Liam White was one of 30 people nominated last year to win the major prize of construction work donated by Peter O’Brien Constructions.

Liam had a brain stem tumour and it had affected his ability to walk, to communicate and also his vision. And, until his family’s bathroom was renovated to be wheelchair-friendly he simply could not return home.

His mother Vanessa White said winning the prize has change their lives and allowed their family to be reunited.

“I don’t know if we could have ever afforded it [the renovations]. There wasn’t a hope in hell without Peter’s [O’Brien] generous donation,” she said.

Applications for this year’s major prize of a $20,000 project by Peter O’Brien Constructions close at noon on Friday.

Entry is open to an individual or a not-for-profit organisation.

Entry forms appear in the Western Advocate.
