    It takes a community...AGAIN!!

    17 days ago, I started this givealittle initiative, because as we all know, there are hundreds of families in rural, Far North communities who are struggling to put food on the table.

    Next year, KTC is bringing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to the stage, a story that every child should experience. It rested heavily upon my shoulders that even with a largely discounted ticket price, so many Principals were unable to even consider bringing their children to see it, because when it is a struggle to feed our children, who can afford a trip to the theatre? So I asked our community to donate $10 to sponsor a child to help to enable these schools to come and experience the magic.

    Mr Paul Spooner from Spooner Architects got wind of this initiative, and has donated a massive $1,700.00 to the cause! This will enable not one, not two, but THREE ENTIRE SCHOOLS to come to our show! 170 children!!

    Thank you so much Spooner Architects for your incredibly generous donation. You have made my, and 170 children's hearts sing.

    With so much gratitude,

    Thank you so much for all the amazing and generous support we have received from you for our givealittle fundraising initiative - so far we have raised $1,700.00 which equates to 170 children coming to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!! - Kids that wouldn't have otherwise had the opportunity.

    So we can keep the momentum going, may I ask that you please share our givealittle page with your friends/whanau/businesses etc, who you know would feel the same, so we can have a really good attempt at reaching our goal?

    There are over 100 primary schools from Whangarei to Cape Reinga and we really want to give as many of those rural children the chance to come and see the show, as possible.

    Thank you once again, for all of your support.

    With much love and gratitude,
