Ped­dlers to stop in Mata­mata

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page - REXINE HAWES

More than 120 mem­bers of The Ware­house, Plun­ket and other sup­port­ers have hit the road to pedal across New Zealand as part of Pedal for Plun­ket.

Their trip in­cludes a 20 minute stop at the Mata­mata Ware­house this Thurs­day at 11.30am.

To wel­come the ped­dlers and sup­port Plun­ket, The Ware­house Mata­mata is hold­ing a fundraiser at the en­trance to the store which in­cludes a bake stall, bar­be­cue and face paint­ing as well as plenty of small treats for the chil­dren.

Pedal for Plun­ket is a ma­jor fundraiser for Plun­ket na­tion­wide. This is the sec­ond time the event has taken place and it raised over $200,000 in 2016.

The cy­cle tour runs from The Cape to Bluff through­out the month of March.

Mata­mata Ware­house Pedal for Plun­ket co-or­di­na­tor Delma Is­a­beth says The Ware­house is proud to be part of an ini­tia­tive sup­port­ing Plun­ket and is thrilled the ped­dlers have in­cluded the Mata­mata store in their route across the coun­try.

‘‘It’s a re­ally great cause and we hope the whole com­mu­nity will get be­hind it by com­ing down, meet­ing the ped­dlers and buy­ing some bak­ing and a sausage.’’
