Move in the offing for women’s centre
Three leading London developers will show their purple side when they get manicures next week for the London Abused Women’s Centre.
Doug Wastell, president of Wastell Builders Group and the London Home Builders Association, Vito Frijia, owner of Southside Construction, and Toby Stolee, director of housing operations at Sifton Properties and past president of the London Home Builders Association, will be at Artistic Esthetic Spa on Central Ave. on Tuesday for manicures.
“This community really blows me away by the level of support they give us,” said executive director Megan Walker. “These are strong leaders in that industry and I think it’s a very powerful message.”
Walker also revealed the women’s centre will move into a space at 797 York St. at Rectory St. on Valentine’s Day weekend.
The move was sparked by Libro Financial’s news it was merging with United Communities Credit Union. Libro needed the space at the centre’s current York St. location. The property is owned by Southside Construction, which Walker said has been “incredible to us.”
“We’re really, really excited about this move,” she said, pointing out the new location is on all major bus lines and there’s ample parking.
Artistic Esthetic Spa will also participate in Wear Purple day on Nov. 15, with Purple Pedicure Day by donating a percentage of each pedicure to the abused women’s centre.
