Last Thursday the Waiuku Business and Development Association handed over a cheque to Mudlarks from donations raised at Blast to the Past.
Colin Siebert, Treasurer for the Mudlarks, was there to receive the cheque, which was presented by Waiuku Scout, Dylan Brightwell, who was one of the volunteer team that helped collect the donations.
“Jo Brightwell of the Waiuku Scouts organised her group to be our collectors, which was a massive help,” says Sharlene Druyven, Town Manager.
Colin was incredibly appreciative, and said a thank you was needed to the wider Franklin community. “We are very thankful for the generous donation, which will help with the running and capital costs of what we do.”

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.
