Fund-raising and Community Support are two sides of the same Rotary coin.
Our work is funded by the money we raise each year through our various fund-raising projects. The most well-known is the Kerikeri New World Rotary Garden Safari . The Garden Safari is an annual event, this year 2018, is the 31st and the event continues to grow from strength to strength.
While we put the money we raise to work we never lose sight of the fact that it’s really the community’s money. The community’s contribution. Quite literally, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the support of the people of Kerikeri, the Bay of Islands and the wider Mid North area.
Funds we’ve raised in recent years have gone towards projects like building the barbeques in the Kerikeri Basin Reserve, (and in mid year 2018 the club has upgraded the facilities with stainless steel tops) assisting with the building of 5 bridges for the Wairoa Stream track to the “long lost” Wairere water falls, distributing dictionaries to primary school-children across the region, making tracking devices available to dementia patients, and enabling a wide range of youth training programmes, including international exchange students, funding a $150,000 literacy programme, clearing and replanting 1500 trees at Oruaiti school Wetlands and Honey project, etc.
