THIS YEAR (October 2019) we were super stoked to announce we supported Central Lakes Family Services, who celebrated 25 years servicing our community and as a result of the amazing support we received in the community with over 450 locals coming out on tour with us, we raised a whopping record-breaking total of $11,352 for this awesome local charity that supports Central Otago and Southern Lakes families.
Wish to know more about what Central Lakes Family Services does:
What is Locals Month? We offer the local community and residents the chance to come out and experience the thrill-seeking fun of Ziptrek, for a significantly reduced rate with a percentage of the proceeds going to a local charity in our community.
Who did we support in 2019? Last month we supported Central Lakes Family Services who were celebrating 25years servicing our community and set a ambitious $10K total to raise, which we were delighted to smash, raising over $11K. A huge thank you to all the Locals who came and supported us by zipping through the trees.
Who have we helped so far? We have supported 10 local groups since we opened in 2009 and they include Queenstown Family Centre, Youth Booth, Wakatipu Search & Rescue, Kiwi Birdlife Park, St Johns Ambulance, Queenstown Scouts, Wakatipu Reforestation Trust, The Branches Trust, the Queenstown Volunteer Fire Brigade and most recently (Oct 2019) Central Lakes Family Services.
How much have we raised to date? We have raised a whopping $92K over the last decade of supporting these amazing ten charities.
