3. Christmas Family night at Glenfield Bunnings – 7 December
Our friends at Bunnings in Glenfield are having a free Christmas Family night on the 7 of December. There will be a show for the kids, a bouncy castle, Santa Claus, face painting, balloons and something to eat.
If you would like to go along they would appreciate a call just to make sure that they cater for everyone. You can call them on 09 443 8891
4. Bike the Bridge – Sunday 18 February, 2018
Lock this date in your calendar for 2018! You can register here.
This has become a very popular family event. MS Auckland continues to be one of the official charity partners, sharing it this time with Bike Auckland. On registration you can add your donation to either (or both) charities.
Over the years people have also set up Give-a-Little or Everyday Hero fundraising pages and used the event to raise funds to support the services offered at MS Auckland. All donations over $5 are tax deductible and very much appreciated!
If you would like help in setting up a fundraising page please let us know. We would love to help you get started.
This will be my last e-newsletter to you for 2017. The next one will be coming your way in February. Please consider following us on Facebook for interesting stories and updates, and check out our website for more news, information and events.
Thank you lovely people, for your support, your feedback and your interest in the work we do.
Wishing you a season filled with love and gratitude.
