Bid to help school ‘blitz’

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Mem­bers of the Mt Al­bert Bap­tist Church are do­ing their bit to sup­port their lo­cal school this week­end.

In a ‘school blitz’ on Sun­day, they will be hold­ing a TradeMestyle auc­tion where peo­ple and busi­nesses have do­nated items and skills for oth­ers to pur­chase.

All funds raised from the auc­tion, which is at the church from noon, will go to Mt Al­bert Pri­mary School.

On Satur­day and Sun­day, peo­ple from the church and com­mu­nity will also help to plant shrubs and trees, and make a sand­pit, veg­gie gar­den, and seat­ing area mu­ral to brighten up the school.

The church is plan­ning to or­gan­ise sim­i­lar projects to help the Mt Al­bert com­mu­nity over the next few years.

Pas­tor Jonathon Dove says the project is a great way to get in­volved in the com­mu­nity.

“Be­ing a church doesn’t just mean get­ting to­gether on a Sun­day but meet­ing needs in the com­mu­nity and con­nect­ing with the Mt Al­bert com­mu­nity.

“Schools have an in­cred­i­ble role in shap­ing the lives of our chil­dren and we want to ac­knowl­edge that by mak­ing the school en­vi­ron­ment a bet­ter place for kids to turn up to on Mon­day morn­ing.”

Work will start at 8am each day and fin­ish at 5pm on Satur­day and at 3pm on Sun­day. Peo­ple will­ing to help with the project are wel­come on the week­end.
