Town goes red for kids
Spotty plot: Red dots could be seen all over Matamata on Friday, August 24. Red Nose Day to Cure Kids is a national fundraising campaign that celebrates our communities, embraces the lighthearted Kiwi culture, and supports children across New Zealand. A simple idea created over two decades ago, the campaign encourages everyone to let go, laugh, and be silly all for a serious cause and that’s exactly what many Matamata residents did.
Giving: Matamata Chronicle manager Milly Keys presents a cheque to Graeme Guilford for $750 on behalf of the generous local businesses who participated in the Red Nose Day to Cure Kids page published Wednesday, August 22.
Support: Louise McAllister and Charlie outside Absolutte cafe.
Hitting the streets: Michelle Tanner on Broadway collecting donations and handing out free cupcakes to support Red Nose Day.
