On Saturday the 2nd of September four members of the WR Phillips team spent two hours collecting donations for the annual Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Taranki fundraiser.
Darrin, Michelle, Ryan and Max split into teams of two and split the task into an hour each, Darrin and Michelle forming the 10-11am shift and Max and Ryan forming the other 9-10am shift. There was plenty of banter leading into Saturday with a healthy rivalry formed. The teams fundraised at Countdown Vogeltown with lots of foot traffic helping the flow of donations immensely.
"It was great to get out and help such a worthy cause and it was heart-warming to see how happy people were to donate." said Michelle von Pein, Vehicle Administrator.
The WR Phillips team raised $795.30 which was nearly 25% of the total $3760 that was raised on Saturday. The funds donated will assist MS Taranaki with their mission of provide and maintain the highest level of services available with the funds available.
