Cake stalls be­gin Plun­ket ap­peal

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Plun­ket Ap­peal Month is hap­pen­ing na­tion­wide in March and each Plun­ket area is en­cour­aged to come up with its own ways to fundraise.

This year Mata­mata Plun­ket will be hold­ing cake stalls out­side BNZ Bank on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 29, and Fri­day, March 2, from 9am un­til 12pm.

Lots of yummy treats baked by Mata­mata Plun­ket com­mit­tee mem­bers will be for sale.

A baby gear sale will also be held at the Mar­ket Day at Mata­mata Pri­mary on Satur­day, March 10.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Janelle Burn­side said so far the com­mu­nity had been won­der­ful, do­nat­ing baby gear to sell.

‘‘Ev­ery­thing from cots to cloth­ing, toys to linen. Grab a fan­tas­tic bar­gain while sup­port­ing your Plun­ket,’’ she said.

Mrs Burn­side said Plun­ket would also be do­ing some door knock­ing around some streets in Mata­mata.

‘‘So if we come to you please be gen­er­ous,’’ she said.

So what the funds to­wards?

With all the heavy rain lately the Plun­ket rooms roof has been leak­ing so re­pairs are needed.

‘‘We will also be re­plac­ing some car­pet that has been dam­aged over the years from the leaks,’’ Mrs Burn­side said. There was also a stor­age area which needed a com­pletely new roof.
