Buy a Hillary Brick
HH SEHC Student Leaders and Hillary Bric

When the house was moved, we decided to clean up and store bricks from Sir Edmund Hillary’s study because we identified they could be a great source of fundraising.  Some of the bricks from the foundations were also cleaned and stored. Hillary House Leadership Centre Trust sells the bricks, each with a certificate of authenticity, to assist our fundraising.

Study bricks are sold for $350 each in a commemorative box and $300 unboxed (limited number). Foundation bricks are sold for $200 each.   Some people have also purchased and re-auctioned the bricks for their nominated charity.
