Community gets behind Te Horo Hall fund


Efforts to raise funds for restoration of Te Horo Hall have in the first two weeks brought in more than $10,000.

 The first two events in a series running until the end of May each raised about $3000, with takings from a third expected to exceed $4000. Individuals are also making private donations.

On Saturday, February 24, Kate, Harry and Tim Gibbs of Stanmore Farm in Settlement Road opened their gates for a popular blackberry picking fundraiser.

Then on Thursday, March 7, the hall hosted a quiz night (pictured) with 180 tickets being sold. The event was  over-subscribed. People keen will have another quiz opportunity on April 4.

From the total of about $3000, just over $1000 was from raffles, with prizes donated by local businesses Soap Box and Penray Gardens.

“It was a great night,” said quiz night organiser Lin McCarthy. “The turnout was amazing and everyone had so much fun.”

A long lunch was hosted by Glenda and John Parker on Saturday, March 9.

“It was spectacular and the hosts were very hospitable and hugely generous,” said Te Horo Community Hall Society chair Andrew Annakin.
