The visionary project to create a public outdoor education and recreation park around the new lake filling a former mine at Kimihia in Huntly is in part being enabled by a trust originally established to build a school camp near Raglan.

The Huntly Karioi Trust was established in 1972 to facilitate outdoor education opportunities for the students of Huntly College. It was incorporated the following year, as camping and other outdoor training classes were getting underway at the College.

By 1976 the Trust had raised in excess of $30,000, a significant amount at the time, achieved with the support of the College’s staff, local farmers and the community at large.

Two significant fundraisers had been a raffle for a new car, and the running of a relay from Wellington to Huntly in just under 44 hours by nine students, including Lynda Topp, and teacher Brian Curle, as pictured below.

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!
