Wootton memorial dinner
The annual fundraiser dinner and auction in honour of Sergeant Derek Wootton will take place on Saturday, August 16.
Derek Wootton, a Porirua police officer, was killed in the line of duty in Titahi Bay in July 2008. A trust in his name, to assist local young people in academic, cultural, social and sporting activities, was established a year later.
Fundraising exceeded $30,000 in each of 2012 and 2013. Each of the seven colleges in the Kapiti Mana policing area is offered $2000 for a student to attend university.
Tickets cost $100 per person or $1000 for a table. See dwmt.org.nz.
