ITC Study From Home donates $1,000 to community playgroundPosted on 15/03/2017 by Jess O'Connor
The children of Waimauku have a wonderful new playground thanks to the generosity of the Waimauku Lions and supporting businesses, including ITC Study From Home.
Study From Home donated $1,000 to the Waimauku Lions Centennial Adventure Playground, which officially opened on February 25.
Former prime minister John Key opened the playground alongside a local boy, Jamie Harnett. Jamie celebrated his 5th birthday last year, and instead of asking for presents, he asked all his friends and family to donate some money towards the playground. The community-minded five year old (pictured right) raised $350.
ITC’s Level 5 Programme Leader, Carla Sutton, says the Waimauku playground was an ideal project for Study From Home to sponsor.
“The Waimauku community and its surrounding suburbs are just far enough away from the city centre to make commuting to College a challenge for locals, especially those with children,” says Carla.
“With Study From Home, they can study towards an airline, travel or tourism qualification from home in Waimauku, without battling the traffic or public transport every day.”
Carla is also a longstanding member of the Waimauku Lions. On behalf of the community group, she thanks ITC and the rest of the contributing businesses for their support.
“We couldn’t have done this without all the generous donations we received from local businesses. We know the families of Waimauku will cherish this playground for decades to come.”
