MAUKU School, Franklin Street Rodders and Mitre 10 Mega Pukekohe are proving to be a great example of what community spirit is all about.

The trio have all been working together to help raise funds for the school, and have created two great initiatives that the Franklin community should mark in their diaries.
Dean Littin, Managing Director for Mitre 10 Mega has donated a trailer, which will be loaded with groceries and gifts then raffled by the school.
All proceeds raised will be donated to Mauku School.
Tickets will be on sale at the Mauku Fun Run, which will be held on Sunday, April 10. It will be drawn at the Franklin Street Rodder’s Show and Swapmeet on Saturday, April 16, which will also be held on the Mauku School grounds.
“This year the PTA is working hard to raise funds to improve the pool facility and surrounding area so that it can continue to be enjoyed by the children and local families. We are so appreciative of the Franklin Street Rodders and Mitre 10 Mega for coming onboard and supporting us,” says Principal, Angela Smith.
Dean says that he enjoys giving back to the community who support his business.
“I’m a firm believer of giving back where I can. The children of Franklin are our future Mitre 10ers and DIYers, so we need to look after them and encourage their parents to shop local.”
Mark Seamer of the Franklin Street Rodders, believes it is another great example of businesses and local groups working together.
“There is something for everyone to enjoy at both the Fun Run and our third Annual Show and Swapmeet,” he said.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
