Film fundraiser for arson-hit charitable trust


Life Education Trust volunteers are still hard at work fundraising to replace the equipment and resources lost when the mobile classroom was burnt down while parked at Brookfield Primary School earlier this year.

The trust is holding a movie evening tonight to continue to raise funds.

Life Education Trust board member Debbie Given said the trust has had wonderful support from local schools, businesses and charitable organisations in the Western Bay of Plenty which have donated money towards new resources for the classroom.

"We will have a new classroom built in 2013, so we are currently on a loan classroom until then. We have been having to make and create and purchase new teaching resources. This has been expensive and timely.

"Thankfully we had a classroom up and running straight away, so no schools missed out,'' she said.

The Warehouse are selling Harold pencils for $2 each with the money going back to the Western Bay region.

Tickets to tonight's fundraiser are $15. The movie, Arbitrage, starts at 6pm at the Rialto Cinema, 21 Devonport Rd.
