On Friday 2 March Possum Bourne Retirement Village held a Village Market Day to raise funds for the areas in Tonga devastated by Cyclone Gita. They raised more than $3000 for the islands from the event. Mostly raised through a bake sale and auction. Residents and staff provided the baked goods and local businesses donated goods and services for the auction.
Possum Bourne Retirement Village would like to extend a big thank you to all involved in making this a very successful event. Special thanks to the local businesses who donated a variety of goods and vouchers such as clothing, shoes, jewellery, handbags, holiday accommodation, beauty therapy and more.
All of the Villages in the Ryman Healthcare group have been carrying out fundraising for Cyclone Gita Relief. Every dollar made by the Villages is matched dollar for dollar by Ryman Healthcare before being gifted to the Red Cross.
