Fundraising projects in the parish are times of great fellowship. Working together on these activities has forged deep and lasting friendships. We have had garage sales, theatre nights, art exhibitions, fairs, galas, cake stalls, and Harvest Fairs … Two on-going projects support the Parish.
The Firewood Project is an excellent fundraiser. This team of keen people turn out on Saturday mornings to saw, split, stack and sell firewood. Generally it is light work and there are several women in the team. Heavier work is done by the younger, sturdier members.
The team works on a Saturday morning from 9am until 12 noon. Usually the venue is a parishioner's farm off Paekakariki Hill Road, but sometimes at other places. It is all good fun and fellowship and everyone enjoys a cool beer or a lemonade at the end of the morning's work. We welcome anyone interested in joining the team.
