Creek gym earns grant

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Can­nons Creek Youth Char­i­ta­ble Trust has ben­e­fited from a Nikau Foun­da­tion grant.

The trust’s head coach, Latu Talu, and his team have made tremen­dous progress since open­ing a gym in Can­nons Creek last year and im­pressed the Nikau Foun­da­tion.

Nikau is fund­ing manager for the Tin­dall Foun­da­tion in the Welling­ton re­gion, and has al­ready had ex­cel­lent feed­back on a grant made to Nae­nae Youth Char­i­ta­ble Trust.

En­cour­aged by what has gone on in Nae­nae, the Tin­dall Foun­da­tion was happy to sup­port the Can­nons Creek trust, which sprang out of the Nae­nae project.

Nikau Foun­da­tion also sup­ported an ini­tia­tive of Welling­ton Free Am­bu­lance called Heart­beat.

This aims to make the Welling­ton re­gion the most likely place in New Zealand to sur­vive a sud­den car­diac ar­rest, by teach­ing thou­sands of chil­dren how to do CPR and how to use a de­fib­ril­la­tor.

This month Nikau in­tro­duced the two grant re­cip­i­ents to each other, to de­velop the skills of Porirua young­sters fur­ther and pro­vide train­ing with a de­fib­ril­la­tor.
