Every year we hold a fundraiser for Cure Kids as part of their Red Nose Day appeal in September. We strongly support Cure Kids in their mission to save our kids. Our Senior Consultant, Bernadette Sharkey-Burns’s son Finn is an ambassador for Cure Kids and suffers from Type 1 Diabetes. So not only do we support Cure Kids, we are wanting to support our staff and help find a cure for Finn.
Our annual fundraiser is a highlight of the year and we are aiming to raise $1,500 this Red Nose Day. Our favourite component of the day (and Finn’s favourite) is our prize wheel where you spin for a prize. Could be a night’s accommodation and breakfast at the Grand Mercure…or a Michael Buble Christmas Album.
In the prep for the fundraiser, we have been blown away by the helpful nature and generosity of businesses around Wellington that are willing to donate prizes for our wheel. It is always interesting how companies respond to, “we are fundraising and are looking for some support, would you be willing to help or donate?” emails.
Some truly amazing messages have been coming through, from some of Wellington’s smallest family businesses to big company players offering their support. We have been incredibly grateful for the generosity of Wellington and would like to thank all sponsors. Below are the businesses that have currently donated prizes or have offered their support for our fundraiser that will be held on the 28th September.
If you would like to help, please let us know by contacting our fundraising organiser, Olivia Kelsey on firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can donate directly to our fundraising page to help us reach our $1,500 goal, Donate Here.
