Car boot sale funds to aid quake school

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By LAURA McLEAY

See­ing the dam­age caused at Red­cliffs Pri­mary School in Christchurch has prompted Hin­uera School to fundraise for their fel­low stu­dents.

It is host­ing a car boot sale on March 26 at the school and will give the ma­jor­ity of the pro­ceeds to help Red­cliffs pur­chase new school equip­ment dam­aged in the Fe­bru­ary quake.

Par­ent Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Chris Thompson said this was a good way to forge a link with Red­cliffs and to know the money do­nated would be go­ing some­where specif­i­cally.

‘‘We are well sup­ported by the com­mu­nity here, so are in the po­si­tion to help out.

‘‘We know how hard it can be for schools fundraise and they lost a lot of equip­ment.’’

To bring a car to the sale there is a fee of $10, which will be added to funds sent to Red­cliffs.

Mr Thompson said those who were shift­ing on June 1 might want to have an early clean out.

Aside from the car boot sale, there will be other ac­tiv­i­ties to cre­ate a fam­ily event.

The day kicks off at 8am and there will be cake stalls, sausage siz­zles, ice creams and a pup­pet show at 10am in the school hall. For in­for­ma­tion phone Chris Thompson on 888-1941 or 021-234-1860.
