Bag­ging funds

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The Ware­house Mata­mata do­nated al­most $400 to two lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions last week. Firth Pri­mary was handed a cheque for $195 and Hand to Hand Con­sult­ing, a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion of­fer­ing free work­shops to Mata­mata people, was awarded $200. The funds came from the sale of plas­tic bags for 10 cents each. Store man­ager Wil­lie Hall said 100 per cent of the profit made from sell­ing bags goes to lo­cal causes. Pic­tured (above) are Firth Pri­mary stu­dents Ben­jamin Pil­more-Evans and Kather­ine Grif­fits, front, with prin­ci­pal James Eldridge, check­out op­er­a­tor Yana Grif­fits and Mr Hall. Also pic­tured (be­low), is Mr Hall with Amy Martin of Hand to Hand Con­sult­ing and team mem­ber Joe Hunt.

Leaps and bounds: Mata­mata preschooler Blues Vi­damo has made huge im­prove­ments with ap­plied be­havioural anal­y­sis ther­apy.
