Cash needed for char­ity trip

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Funds are still needed for a char­ity trip to help Myan­mar’s chil­dren.

St Lukes Body Shop man­ager Hali Pur­cell left last Tues­day for a Thai vil­lage, Mae Sot, on the Thai­land and Myan­mar bor­der, where she will spend a month teach­ing chil­dren in schools and board­ing houses.

She is vol­un­teer­ing for the char­ity Chil­dren on the Edge and had hoped to fundraise $2000 to­wards her trip so she could take sports equip­ment.

But she raised only $360 through a bake sale and mas­sage evening and has taken out a loan to cover the rest.

Miss Pur­cell says she will still be able to leave equip­ment be­hind but not as much as she had hoped.

Any­one want­ing to do­nate to the trip can de­posit money in a spe­cially set up BNZ Bank ac­count.

The ac­count name is COTE and the num­ber is 02-0316-03564-68-097.
