Fund Raising - Charities
The Rotary club of Tauranga Te Papa together with the Zonta club of Tauranga Area are excited to run its fifth Melbourne Cup Charity Auction. With a change in timing, for the first time this prestigious charity event supporting iconic and deserving local charities will incorporate a Gourmet Dinner rather than a Gourmet Lunch.
Come and Join us for a late afternoon and evening of fun and entertainment, gourmet food, auctions and fashion, including the highlight, the running of the Melbourne Cup – Live on the big screens.
Fabulous prizes are up for grabs for fashion in the field winners, both male and female so get dressed up and make up a table of friends or workmates.
If you like to win a bit of money, sweepstakes will be sold on the day. If you like to win LOTS of money then be in the action to secure a horse in the Calcutta, BIG dollars are able to be won here.
Our MC and keynote speaker is the well-known Jim Hopkins. Jim Hopkins, New Zealand celebrity well known for his work in television, radio and theatre and local body politics along with him being a scriptwriter for Close to Home, presenter of Fast Forward, Don’t Tell Me, The Inventors, Dateline Monday, and a performer on The BNZ Festival Debates.

Shorts4Hospice is one way we can raise funds and ask for donations in a fun and inclusive way. Every dollar raised from Shorts4Hospice goes towards enabling our team of nurses, doctors, social workers, counsellors and volunteers to ensure we provide the highest standard of palliative care services within our community. As a charity, all of our services are provided at no cost to the patients and their family, but to be able to do this and support our local community we need to raise over $3.7million per year.

We are building a Community Garden at Omokoroa Point School. If you can spare $5 – $10 (or more if you can afford it) to help this happen we would be very grateful.
This Garden has the backing of the Omokoroa Point School Board of Trustees and the Omokoroa Food Bank.
- We aim to provide a selection of planter beds that the general public can come and harvest from for free. Fresh, in season, vegetables; herbs and fruit will be there for anyone who needs it.
- We aim to provide a set number of planter beds for the school to utilise for education with the “garden to table” scheme. More information can be found here. http://www.gardentotable.org.nz . Due to the current work load of teachers; the new buildings being built and other financial commitments the school will look to take on the Garden to table curriculum in either late 2020 or early 2021.
- We are planning on leasing out a number of the planter beds to the local community to encourage people to come together and support each other and provide a safe place for people to meet and build a sense of community. The rental on these beds will be nominal (approx. $15 / month). It is to ensure there is some buy in from the users and to provide a small income for maintenance and the purchase of consumables.
- There will also be planter beds set aside for the community food bank to provide them with fresh, in season vegetables for those that need it in our community.
- The Good Neighbour Trust have agreed to help us out with the build and to provide support through mentors.
- Supergans of Kati Kati have contacted us and would love to be involved too. Great news! https://www.supergranswbop.org.nz/
- Thank you to all of you who have donated via the give a little page Please follow the link to see who these people are. All of your donations are gratefully received, large or small.
- Also thank you for the generous donations so far of a shed; wheelbarrow; pots; seeds; garden benches. Please keep them coming.
- So far we have sponsors for 7 of our planter beds. A big thank you to (in no particular order):
- Tremains Real Estate.
- Bernie Limbrick of Tall Poppy Real Estate.
- The Garden Early Learning Centre.
- MEC Electrical.
- Nick Kershaw of Prime Strategies.
- Mark Lynch of Excel Insurance.
- Thank you to Lex Bacon who is donating his time and digger to the project.
- Thank you to Richard Hewison for his offer to survey the site.
I fear i might have missed someone. If i have please let me know as i’d like to let everyone know of your generosity.
We still need your help. If you’d like to sponsor or co-sponsor a planter bed or if you can help with a small donatio; have any tools; water tanks; seeds; gardening skills; or just want to be a part of it. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Id love to hear from you.

We are a group of 4 locals who are doing the Oxfam Trailwalker 50km on 23rd March to help raise money for the work that Oxfam does in developing countries. We are holding a Movie fundraiser at the Rialto Cinema on Sunday March 17th at 5.30pm and have been lucky enough to be able to show an Advanced Screening of the hot new NZ movie Daffodils. This movie includes remakes of lots of classic NZ songs that you will know and love. Tickets are $20 which includes nibbles and a prize draw. We also have some amazing silent auctions. So if you are looking for an excuse to go to the movies – this is it! To purchase tickets text Catherine on 02102459106 with your name and the number of tickets and she will send you payment details. Or you can go directly to our Oxfam page www.oxfamtrailwalker.org.nz/hopscotch-mafia and donate the amount of the tickets. Please see the poster attached and you can watch the trailer here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxSgEQoVGJI. We hope to see you there
I would really appreciate it if you could promote our give a little page. You are probably aware of the work being done to reopen he Ruamoana walkway. As a late addition to the walkway project, our 3 households at 23-25 Ruamoana Place have agreed to including these steps with the other repairs to reopen the walkway. However we feel others may want to contribute to the steps as well.
We have set up a ‘give a little’ page. We now have the first 3 donations to verify we exist and therefore open the page and start the ball rolling. The link to his page is on the attached flyer https://givealittle.co.
Did try to upload this myself but it only allowed images no pdfs. Have attached it as a word file as well if that helps.
Thanks heaps and if you need anything else please let me know.

(Ed. Excerpt from page)
“As the project was coming in slightly under the $600,000 budget, Peter approached us to include the replacement of the beach access steps between 26 and 27 Ruamoana Place in the project. These steps were originally put in by Ruamoana Place residents but were old and decaying. By including them, this time the Council pays half and there is no issue with permission and permits. These steps are now complete and look fantastic and are far less scary than the previous ones.
The households at 23 – 25 Ruamoana Place are happy to underwrite this communal asset but feel these steps are an opportunity for others who use the beach and the walkway to also feel they have contributed to this beautiful area and pay a share of the now subsidised cost.
This ‘give a little’ page has been set up to help fund the neighbourhood $8,000 share of these steps. Do you enjoy the use of these stairs and this walkway? Your contribution – a little or a lot – will be much appreciated.
Any proceeds from this give a little page will be used to reimburse the three households equally only for their underwriting of this part of the overall project. Peter Clark’s estimate of the cost states ‘The quote for just over $16k includes for the removal of the existing steps, new foundation posts, and total replacement of the existing [steps] to approximate its current dimensions.’”
The Centre, the little community shop in Hamurana Rd, could be interested in accepting some of your unsold goods. We are looking for more crockery, saucepans, casserole dishes and most other kitchenware. Please don’t be offended if we can’t take everything; our premises are very small. All profits are donated to local groups..
VENUE: 16th Avenue Theatre, Tauranga. 7pm performance.
FUNDRAISING FOR: Paralympics NZ and Te Tuinga Whanau Support Services Trust.
