Charities & Community Involvement
It is important to Addington that we reach out to our local community involving ourselves and supporting many charitable and not for profit organisations.
Our support by way of sponsorship or donations plays a vital part to many community organisations ensuring they continue to operate within a positive environment.
During the months of June and July, Addington and Spectators are supporting Christchurch NZ Riding for the Disabled as they raise funds to purchase a new horse and pony to join their equine therapy team.
This is not an easy task as you can image they need a very special type of animal – unflappable, patient and kind.
There is a donation box in Spectators, along with some horse shaped cookies you can purchase with all proceeds going to the charity. If you would like to donate online click here.
For further information on Christchurch NZ Riding for the Disabled please visit their website.
GARDEN CITY ROTARY
During the months of April & May 2017 we are supportedGarden City Rotary. They were promoting Emergency Response Kits (ERKS) as their charity. ERKS are assembled and sent to Pacific Islands in readiness for likely natural disasters.
