RELAY FOR LIFE 2022

This year the Relay For Life event raised over $380,000 and it is hoped that this mark can be reached again next year. Relay For Life is a 24-hour event that sees cancer survivors, carers and those who have lost loved ones to cancer join in remembrance while raising much needed funds. Relay For Life is one of the Cancer Society’s key fundraising and community engagement activities. It’s for people of ages and fitness levels. Anyone can take part if you’re interested in entering a team head to relayforlife.org.nz/manawatu! Relay For Life is an annual fundraising event and will celebrate its 22nd anniversary next year.

GARAGE SALE FUNDRAISER: ALL FOR LOLO, SUPPORTING LOLO TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE

Garage sale fundraiser: all for Lolo. Lolo is an argentinian baby who will have access to a medical treatment to improve his quality of life but he needs to start preparing for a long trip and a long stay away from home while the treatment is given to him. So we decided to organise this garage sale in order to support him in this new journey. We have a great selection of clothes and shoes (children and adults), outdoor equipment, toys (great Xmas present opportunities! 🎅🎁) and a collection of label clothing that will be a steal of a deal 😎!!! Please, come and join us and keep supporting us in this cause.
