We need a new van to transport SkillWise people to their educational and volunteering activities around Christchurch.
SkillWise supports 150 adults with intellectual disabilities. We provide them with activities that include education, life skills, hobbies, sport, employment opportunities and volunteering. Most of these activities are scattered across Christchurch so every day we transport SkillWise people in our van. Sadly our van is old and needs constant repairs. We need a replacement very soon.
I'm involved because I am the principle fundraiser for the organisation.
SkillWise works in partnership with over 220 people who have intellectual disabilities, their families and whanau. We aim to work with and empower each person to feel valued as a fully participating citizen through work, education and having fun!
Many thanks for your donation towards our van appeal. Very much appreciated by all of us at SkillWise. Merry Christmas.
