Harbour cruise for 30 kids
We asked and you delivered. Thirty lucky kids will spend a day out on the harbour this weekend in the first Red Boats/Suburban Newspapers Xmas Cruise.
Red Boats came up with the idea earlier this year and Suburban Newspapers, publisher of the Auckland City Harbour News called on readers to nominate youngsters who could do with a bit of a boost as 2013 draws to a close.
We were inundated with names and supporting letters and thank everyone who participated.
Red Boats’ captain Andrew Somers says the cruise will be a first for many and the chil- dren will be entertained with games and fun activities, some special guests, a sausage sizzle and some great spot prizes.
‘‘The prizes include tickets to Rainbow’s End, jet boat rides and restaurant vouchers. There is also the chance of a surprise visit from the big jolly fellow in red!’’
