Methven Preschool to host a fundraiser with a dif­fer­ence.

Methven Preschool is pre­par­ing to host a fundraiser with a dif­fer­ence, on a topic that ev­ery­one should know about.

It’s putting on an in­for­ma­tive evening cov­er­ing the sub­ject of fu­ner­als and wills, on Thurs­day June 8, at Ski Time Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, Race­course Ave, Methven at 7.30pm.

Guest speak­ers in­clude Barry Hay­man from Pater­son’s Fu­ner­als and Matthew Mar­shall from White Fox and Jones, lawyers. Hay­man and Mar­shall are ex­perts in their re­spec­tive fields of work and they will wel­come ques­tions from the floor.

Methven Preschool is a not for profit or­gan­i­sa­tion – a reg­is­tered char­ity – which means all funds raised go back into the preschool to cover gen­eral run­ning costs, re­sources and the em­ploy­ment of qual­i­fied reg­is­tered teach­ers.

Work­ing with re­duced gov­ern­ment fund­ing can be quite a jug­gling act to meet their vi­sion and phi­los­o­phy to pro­vide top qual­ity ECE child­care and ed­u­ca­tion, there­fore fundrais­ing is an in­evitable ne­ces­sity in meet­ing the short­falls.

The funds raised from the fu­ner­als and wills evening will be used in the con­struc­tion of sound­proof­ing of the cur­rent sleep­ing area, a well over­due project that will ben­e­fit the in­fants and younger chil­dren im­mensely.

Although the thought of a fu­neral and the or­gan­is­ing of your es­tate may ap­pear a mor­bid sub­ject, it is im­por­tant to be pre­pared, and the preschool hopes the com­mu­nity will sup­port the event.

Tick­ets are $10 per per­son, in­clud­ing sup­per, and they are avail­able from the preschool (03 302 8564).
