Doing good

Nicky Telles

Doing good!

The PTA will be collecting goods to help support those in need after the recent earthquakes. We will be donating goods to the North Canterbury Rural Support Trust.

They are distributing these, in particular to the isolated farmers and communities in the Waiau, Culverden, Parnassus, Cheviot and Conway areas. Any non-perishable items you have to donate would be greatly appreciated!! In particular things such as baby food/wipes/formula/nappies, grocery items, bottled water, baking (that will keep), toilet paper etc.

Please take any items to the office by Friday afternoon and we will get this delivered over the weekend. We will look to doing another delivery next week as well for those that can’t get something in by Friday.

This is a crisis that we understand all too well and I’m sure there are many of you wanting to be able to do something to help so Thank You!
