Happy New Year to everybody in the Ahuroa Community
The Ahuroa Community Hall and School Fundraiser is coming up on the weekend of the 24th and 25th February – an organised horse trek through several local privately owned farms. Horsey types ( 😊 ) from all over the north are apparently pretty excited!
This is a great opportunity to raise some funds for special upcoming projects for the hall and school. The bonus is that we don’t need a huge amount of people power to make it happen (yay), but we DO need food donations (and a little help in the kitchen) to make it work, as we will be feeding approximately 40-50 people x 4 meals.
The more food we are able to get donated, the less it will cost to run, so I’m hoping that a whole lot of our Ahuroa community will get behind this and donate generously.
We are looking at a range of food to help put on a continental breakfast, filled rolls and baking for lunch, and a spit roast and buffet style dinner – a comprehensive list is below.
A donation could be as simple as a New World Gift Card, putting a couple of cans of food in your letterbox, donating some excess cucumbers from your garden, or as complicated as making a yummy chocolate brownie – so not too much effort required at all, and every bit will be appreciated.
Here’s the list of items we would love to have donated:
