Another two Million Dollar Mission finalists have reached their funding targets today. A huge congratulations to The Parenting Place ($2,500) and Waitakere Badminton Association ($30,000) for securing enough votes to achieve their targets.
Over $500,000 of funding from The Trusts has been allocated to community organisations making a difference to the lives of West Aucklanders. There is still a lot more funding available though and you can help decide who gets it.

Hi neighbours. Our bad recycling habits have seen 32,300 tonnes of rubbish find its way into recycling bins. This then had to be diverted to landfill, costing us half a million dollars over the last two financial years. How are you at recycling? What rubbish items have you mistakenly thrown in the recycling bin?
We've picked out some of the highlights coming up in Matariki Festival 2019.
