Nominate a kid for a cruise
Do you know a child who needs a bit of a lift?
The Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust has teamed up with The Red Boats charter company to give 30 children and their caregivers a free three-hour harbour cruise on November 23.
There’s still time to nominate someone for this opportunity.
Trust chairman David Penny says the inaugural 2013 cruise was a huge success and gave a number of kids the opportunity of a lifetime.
‘‘Generous management from The Red Boats approached us with this idea and did everything possible to make sure these children got the opportunity of a lifetime,’’ he says.
The Auckland City Harbour News is asking readers to nominate youngsters for this year’s special trip and tell us why they deserve to go.
We’re especially interested in kids who are overdue for a bit of joy in their lives and will benefit from a new experience in the leadup to Christmas.
The cruise will include entertainment and a bite to eat.
