Thanks to the networking skills of our volunteer Rebecca, young students who forgot their jackets will now stay dry during our Wetland Education Program. And with the weather we had, that is definitely a bonus!
Rebecca approached her friend at Barfoot & Thompson Kumeu, who generously supplied these colourful rain jackets. Thank you so much! It’s so great to get local business support for our conservation and education projects. Not only does it saves dollars we worked hard to fundraise for, it also confirms what we do is supported by others. We could not have gotten to this point, with a bridge, boardwalks, an educator employed etcetera without the generosity of businesses – from large ones like Alsco, Ricoh and Speights to smaller ones who donated materials or gave their experience or time for free – tradies, lawyers and engineers amongst them.
And very cheekily: we’re also still on the lookout for a sponsor for gum boots… 🙂
