Do­na­tion goes a long way

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Jill Sanson-Emer­ton presents cheques to Pohlen Foun­da­tion chair Lady Mar­garet Spring and Child Can­cer Foun­da­tion Waikato busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager Kris An­der­son. Each or­gan­i­sa­tion re­ceived $7500 thanks to a suc­cess­ful Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val, held in Mata­mata in early July. Speak­ing af­ter the event, Jill said the fes­ti­val wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out the spon­sors, vol­un­tary staff and the schools and en­ter­tain­ers. ‘‘It’s been a fan­tas­tic oc­ca­sion with the end re­sult sim­ply out­stand­ing. Our char­i­ties will now ben­e­fit in such a huge way.’’ And they cer­tainly have.
