Securing the future for local disability support funding

The Team from Momentum Waikato

Here's some great news to start the new year!

The ‘Fund for CCS Disability Action Waikato’ has been set up by the Gemini Trust, through transferring its investment portfolio to the care of Momentum Waikato.

This has allowed the Trust to be wound up, while ensuring its mission to provide financial support for CCS Disability Action Waikato can continue forever.

CCS Disability Action Waikato makes a huge difference in the lives of disabled people and their whaanau across the Waikato, Coromandel and King Country.

A heart-warming example is that of Lexy and her foster parents Maree and Dave in Te Aroha, pictured below.

“She’s a complete social butterfly,” says Maree. “She just brings so much love and laughter into our home. She’s a joy to have in our lives.”

Do you, or your business or organisation, want to support the day-to-day lives of disabled people across the Waikato by helping to grow the income that provides tailored support to enable independence and choice in their lives? Do you want to help disabled people build their futures by attending the University of Waikato?

If you do, please donate to the Fund for CCS Disability Action Waikato!

What's your favourite piece of Waikato history?

Libby Totton Reporter from Waikato Times

Car parks inspired a milking shed design that took off around the world and became a piece of Waikato District history.

A hundred-year-old church and gravestones from the 1880s will also feature as the district turns the spotlight on its past for its first Heritage Day on April 20.
