Wellington City Charity Luncheon

Luncheon guests Table guests Boatshed

On September 20, 2023 Life Education Trust Wellington City held a luncheon to raise funds for our trust and a ramp for our mobile classroom.

It was a wonderful event with drinks, food, music, and lots of laughter.

We managed to raise around $40,000 for our Wellington City trust. This is beyond what we could have ever expected, and we are incredibly grateful. Your donations go toward supporting the education of thousands of children in the Wellington City region.

We’d like to make a special thank you to Tommy’s, who were the main sponsors of our event and without them it wouldn’t have been possible.

We’d also like to extend our thanks to Kathryn Berkett, John O’Connell, and Kyra Basabas for speaking to our attendees.
