Trillian Trek distributes $60,000
The Trillian Trek, which started in Matamata, is now over.
More than $60,000 is now in the hands of the young people and communities visited by NZ’s premier charity rally.
It started at the Browne St home of Raegan and Daniel Edwards.
The ‘Trekkers’ - 135 people in 34 themed cars and trucks - headed up the West Coast of the North Island to Cape Reinga then back down the East Coast distributing funds and equipment to those in need.
The event is in its 27th year. Many participants have been involved for 15 years or more.
Trek Director Murray O’Donnell says the rally was a great success.
‘‘People were really supportive of the new look and our involvement with NZ Blue Light, who already have such a strong positive presence in the communities we visited.’’
Blue Light national executive member, senior constable Rowena Jones, was full of praise for all involved.
‘‘People on the Trek are all about providing brighter futures for our young people, and that’s what Blue Light strives to do.’’
