Paddy rides again to help NZ children join in activities they love doing

$2,501 of $5,000 goal
Given by 40 generous donors in 12 weeks

Sponsor Paddy to help children in need through the Sarah Lilli Fund.


Because of the Sarah Lilli Fund, over 1300 NZ children have been able to enjoy music and dancing lessons; swimming, soccer and other sports; or go to school camp with their friends. After Sarah died her family set up the Fund with Barnardos, to celebrate her life and give other children the kinds of opportunities that she had.

On 26 November Sarah’s dad Paddy is taking on the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge again. He’s aiming to stay on his bike for the full 160 kilometres this year!

Please support his efforts so more children can enjoy sporting, creative and social activities.
