A month-long fundraising effort has come up with more than $4000 for the New Zealand Meningitis Foundation.

The fundraiser was led by Tarsha and Ricky Boniface, whose daughter, Chloe Boniface, died from meningitis in November last year.

Tarsha said it was one way the family could deal with the grief of losing Chloe, while also raising awareness and funds.

Starting with a goal of $1000, the fundraiser ran for almost all of last month and culminated on World Meningitis Day on April 24.


Tarsha said they used many different ways to get the community involved and support the initiative.
