Putting the fundraising heroes on the map

6 December 2017



It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a community to raise funds. Here we celebrate the top fundraisers by category – and also acknowledge the many, many more who helped make the first Camp 4 Camp Quality CAMPaign such a success.

Please check out www.camp4campquality.org.nz for more of our fundraisers.



Top Region - Wellington/Central Districts

Total raised: $73,880

From Palmerston North and New Plymouth in the West, to Napier in the East and down to Wellington, these guys were committed to taking on the challenge to win the Top Region Fundraising Trophy, and they did it with the drive and determination of many of their Committee members, Companions and community organisations such as Lions Clubs NZ and Freemasons of the Central Division. Congratulations!


Top Business - Nick Beard, Cutlers Real Estate

Real Estate Agent Nick Beard called on his former Otago Cricket team mates to shave their heads at the top of Dunedin’s most famous street.
