Late last year a pop in visit from a local member of the North Harbour Ulysses Club, Wayne Painter, whose grandson was staying on site, led to a conversation about the possibility of the Club fundraising for the Wilson Home Trust. Being north shore based the Club was looking for a local charity to support and we were thrilled when the members chose the Wilson Home Trust earlier this year.
The initial fundraising target was $3,000 which would enable the Trust to buy a big screen TV, playstation, Nintendo and Wii consoles for the children who stay on site in the rehab or respite areas to use while here.
Little did we know when we arrived at the Clubs July meeting that the club had raised extra dollars amounting to $1,600 plus purchasing the TV and play station equipment resulting in a grand total of $4,000 raised for the Wilson Home Trust. Thank you!!
