High tea event helps needy kids

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Pro­ceeds from a fundrais­ing high tea event on Mother’s Day will help buy back to ba­sics packs for dis­ad­van­taged kids.

Tick­ets to the May 12 func­tion at Auck­land’s Her­itage Ho­tel are on sale now for $65 per adult and $30 per child.

Va­ri­ety – The Chil­dren’s Char­ity is be­hind the event that will in­clude en­ter­tain­ment from Tui award­win­ning singer/ song­writer Tami Niel­son.

Toni Street and Re­nee Wright from TVNZ will talk to MC Mary Lam­bie about the joys and lessons of moth­er­hood and the guest speaker is Jane Port­man, the prin­ci­pal of a decile one school in Gis­borne.

Each back to ba­sics pack con­tains tooth­paste and a tooth­brush, sham­poo, con­di­tioner, a note­book and pen.

Ms Lam­bie says she is hon­oured to help raise aware­ness and money for chil­dren from strug­gling fam­i­lies.

‘‘Mother­ing is hard enough with­out the added pres­sure of won­der­ing where the next meal will come from – too many of our chil­dren are ex­posed to this stress and un­cer­tainty,’’ she says.
