Boot camp for new sports centre
A local fitness trainer came up with an idea to help raise funds to support the new Katikati Sport and Recreation Centre project.
The new centre, estimated to cost $3m will cater for the many clubs and groups in Katikati that either have no clubrooms available, or whose current facilities are run-down and are no longer big enough for the expansion the clubs are experiencing.
Anne Sinclair said an article in the Katikati Advertiser about raising funds for a new Sport and Recreation Centre motivated her to help.
A fitness personal trainer on a very small scale, Anne works at her home training a handful of loyal locals.
She decided to present a sixweek boot camp training session which started on November 5.
All of her clients agreed on a fee and that they would donate the funds towards the Katikati Sports and Recreation Centre project.
“Our expectation is to raise approximately $924,” Anne said.
This will be donated on completion of the boot camp, with the last day on December
The Katikati Sport and Recreation Centre will also benefit from proceeds from the
2019 Katikati Avocado Food and Wine Festival, being held on January 12.
