Bayleys Plate up for a Purpose - Ingrid Taylor
Welcome to my page.Canterbury
I was honoured to be a part of the previous Bayleys’ Plate Up for a Purpose fundraiser, which raised $200,000 for the Christchurch City Mission Back to School Programme this year. My dedication towards ensuring accessible education for New Zealand’s children only grew from the heart-warming experience, so I am returning again to “chop it like it’s hot” in the 2021 event.
Plate Up for a Purpose allows me to combine my passion for cooking and my passion for education. I have, for the last 10 years, been involved in “Empowering Girls to Live and Lead” through my role as Deputy Chair of St. Margaret’s College and also Independent Schools of New Zealand. These children, however, have shoes and uniforms to go to school in and healthy lunches to fuel their brains. Through my involvement in Plate up for a Purpose I hope that we make further steps towards ensuring every child in Canterbury has the necessities to enable them to get the best education possible. These children are our future, and I believe we must do everything we can to guarantee they have access to education and the opportunities it provides .
I raised $8,000 last year and this year with your help I am aiming to raise even more for our Canterbury kids. The Christchurch City Mission pays up to $300,000 towards the school costs of children from struggling families who have nowhere else to turn. Your help is really needed. Together we can transform the lives of local children and give them a fairer chance at education and life.
I hope that you will support me as I attempt to chop my way to the top to ensure future generations have equal opportunities in the future.

To all of the kind people who so generously supported me in the Bayleys Plate up for a purpose..... see the statement below from the Christchurch City Mission
“We were hoping to raise $100,000 for our Back to School Programme, but it’s so exciting to announce that together you raised more than $145,000.
What an incredible effort. I can’t express how much this means to us and to the children from struggling families who we support to go to school with the uniforms and stationery they need.”
WOW and thank you to you all for helping support this worthy cause.
Your generous donations have meant that the Christchurch City Mission have raised a magnificent sum of $145,000 for their Back to School Programme.
I couldn’t have done my bit without your support...it’s wonderful to know that the City Mission are now almost half way there in their fundraising needs for this cause....every little bit makes a difference. xx
