Sup­port up­lift­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

May I, through your pages, thank the Mata­mata com­mu­nity (and be­yond) for the in­cred­i­ble sup­port we en­joyed in our re­cent drive to col­lect bras for the women of Koroipita, Fiji.

When mem­ber and past pres­i­dent Carol Met­calfe told our meet­ing that she planned to take as many bras as she could to the vil­lage, I de­clared my con­fi­dence that the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle would part­ner us in the pro­ject and that the com­mu­nity would rally to the cause – such is my ab­so­lute faith in this won­der­ful part of the county we all call home.

Thank you Chron­i­cle team for your com­mu­nity spirit in pub­li­cis­ing the pro­ject and act­ing as a col­lec­tion base; and thank you to all those women who came to the aid of your Fi­jian neigh­bours. Need­less to say, they were absolutely thrilled to be the re­cip­i­ents of such gen­eros­ity.

In­ner Wheel Mata­mata are grate­ful to you all.
