Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those who fea­tured in the Porirua sec­tion of this year’s Welling­ton Air­port Re­gional Com­mu­nity Awards.

The supreme award went to the Vir­tu­oso Strings Char­i­ta­ble Trust, which has built a tal­ented young orches­tra by pro­vid­ing free in­stru­ments and tu­ition to stu­dents at low de­cile schools since 2013.

Orches­tra di­rec­tor Liz Sneyd de­scribed it as a huge morale boost not only for all the Vir­tu­oso Strings vol­un­teers, but also all the young Vir­tu­oso Strings Orches­tra play­ers, who feel they are part of some­thing that makes Porirua proud.

Over the next four years, the Trust is hop­ing to see se­nior play­ers de­velop and move on to ter­tiary study.

This is as well as start­ing new co­horts of en­thu­si­as­tic younger play­ers from Porirua pri­mary schools.

And well done to all those, in par­tic­u­lar the Welling­ton Com­mu­nity Trust and Porirua City Coun­cil, for en­cour­ag­ing and sup­port­ing the Trust over the last four years.
