VOLUNTEERS OUT IN FORCE
Volunteers will be out in full force at this year’s Pasifika Festival collecting donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Pasifika will be held at Western Springs on March 9-10 and is sponsored by Fairfax Media, owner of the Auckland City Harbour News, and supported by the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust.
Trust chairman David Penny is a senior manager with Fairfax.
‘‘We are thrilled to be associated with a fantastic event of this magnitude,’’ he says.
‘‘Having the ability to align it with a worthwhile charity like Make-A-Wish is an added bonus.
‘‘Aucklanders always turn out in full force for Pasifika and we hope they will be equally enthusiastic when they see our collection buckets doing the rounds on the day.’’
