Well after a long couple of years with a lot of discussions, we have been beavering away here in Marlborough trying to get something sorted for the Wellness Pacific Charitable Trust.
Today we got confirmation that we are now a Registered Charity! YAY!!! "Enter champagne bottle popping noise!" Flower and Mailchimp chimp celebrate with me in the office below...
Needless to say all the hard work we have all put in to this suddenly feels like we have got somewhere.
The tasks we are facing at the moment is trying to get funders on board...once we get that first one under the belt we will be away and kicking.
The HOT days here in Blenheim have been driving us crazy! Especially when we are trying to fill out funding applications.
Our plan so far...we are looking for funders to help us get the course material sorted for our Horticulture and Nutrition course, of course help pay for the administration that is always continuous, and help fund the initial course that we have planned to start in May here in Marlborough.
I personally can't wait to help the youth and RSE workers who will come complete our course and see them grow internally as well as their vegetables. I am a real people person and love seeing others succeed so I can't wait to help the youth and families and all the other people we will help along the way. EXCITING TIMES!!!
We have been using all of our contacts to find people who can help...are you that someone?
Get in touch with us and let us know if you have any ideas. We may have thought about them already...but we may not have...you never know.
