September 2014 Recipients
Recreate NZ, which offer a unique range of adventure programs for disabled youth, received $3,000 to purchase a shuttle trailer for their Auckland branch. The trailer will be used to carry participants’ gear to activities organised by the charity, which include camping, white water rafting, and caving.
Recreate NZ run over 200 programs a year for its Auckland participants but also operate in Christchurch. Many of the camps and getaway trips take place all over New Zealand, from Cape Reinga in the far north to Queenstown in the South Island.
The organisation ensures that those who take part are able to enjoy New Zealand’s beautiful surroundings and adventure tourism safely, however this is only possible by providing secure transport as well as a means of carrying personal gear, food and equipment.
