Thank you for your support of the Bush Bash Fundraiser!


A HUGE thank you to everyone who came along on Saturday 06 April 2019 to support the Bush Bash fundraiser at the Ōhope Christian Camp.  We had such a fun time, with fantastic music from the Backporch Music Duo and seemingly endless platters of delicious food, lovingly made by our fabulous team of Whakatāne Kiwi Trust volunteers.   

We also raised over $4,600.00 on the night, so many thanks again to all our wonderful sponsors and friends who generously donated goods, services or experiences for the charity auction or spot prizes.  A special mention also goes to Paul and Daphne Atkinson from the Ōhope Christian Camp, who allowed us to use the camp’s hall for free.  It was the perfect venue, and we are very grateful for their ongoing support of the Trust.

Finally, our sincere thanks to the Event Committee (Marguerite Timbs, Pauline Siegfried and Shelley Bremner) for all your hard work and enthusiasm in pulling this event together; and many thanks to Kari Hignett for transforming the hall with her brilliant decorations.   There were many other Whakatāne Kiwi Trust volunteers who helped by setting up the hall, preparing food, running the bar AND cleaning up the next day.  You know who you are – thanks so much for your help!!!

We would like to sincerely thank the following sponsors for their support:
