'CONNECT NEWS' - no. 16
2023 at The Champion Centre began with much excitement and anticipation as staff and families reconnected after the long summer break. It’s been a busy and fruitful term. We’ve welcomed new families, we’ve waved children off to school, and we’ve continued to join whānau to support them and their children’s development.
In this edition of Connect we have a number of items of interest to celebrate and share with you:
We are keen to shine the light on one of our new offerings at The Champion Centre - Lego Therapy. We are now running Lego Therapy groups each term for small numbers of children who will benefit. You can read more about this new development and its impact here.
We thank Lu, who generously shares her personal ‘story’ and her thoughts and feelings about coming to The Champion Centre with her son Alfie.
And we are continually grateful to all of our supporters. As a not-for-profit organisation, while we receive government support, we still need to raise over $600,000 per year to ensure we can provide the full range of services to families who need them. We meet this challenge by applying for grants, and through the generosity of a range of supporters and donors. One of our supporters is Matt Rose who is walking from the top of the South Island to the bottom to raise money for a range of charities including The Champion Foundation Trust. You can read more about Matt’s trip in this edition of Connect.
If you or someone you know has a fundraising idea or would like to donate to The Champion Centre, please contact Tracey Horsham on email@example.com. Tracey would love to hear from you.
Lauren and Wendy
