Providing an opportunity for people to work together to 'make a difference' in the lives of othersWellington
The Dugdale Charitable Trust was started in 2011 by Warwick and Chris Dugdale
We began our fundraising with 7 Charity House building projects in the Wairarapa in New Zealand.
Many people helped by donating or discounting their time or supplies for these houses and as a result we were able to make donations to organisations that are invaluable to the Wairarapa community. These included
$80,000 to Ronald McDonald House, $65,000 to Life Flight Trust, $40,000 to $30,000 to Wairarapa Hospice as well as donations to the Riversdale Surf Lifesaving Club, Dalefield School, Cancer Society, Asthma Foundation and support to young people on YWAM (Youth with a Mission) courses.
A 'Huge Thank you' to everyone who journeyed with us during this time.
In 2015 we built 6 hi-spec homes at Smallfield Lane in Upper Hutt to create a small community for the ‘over 60’s’. This project provided a seed fund that we could invest to produce an ongoing income to fund future projects.
We are currently using the funds to help with 3 very different projects
• Carterton Village – Support for ‘at risk’ youth.
• Nelson – Support for the YWAM base in Nelson.
• Uganda – Providing the infrastructure for two schools that provide education for orphans.
