In hosting this year’s event, Geyser’s Deputy Chairman, Alan Wills said this event was a wonderful tribute to the generosity of local people.
“Geyser connects people who care with causes that matter to create greater good for the whole community now and forever.
More than 30 local community groups, charities and individuals received gifts totalling in excess of $40,000.
“This year’s event was, at times very emotional – tears, hugs, laughter and heartfelt thanks
flowed as donors and recipients came together for the first time.
“First established in 2007 with no money, the Foundation is the result of local people understanding that they can do good things with their charitable intentions, and even greater things when they partner with others.
“We’re different because we’re not about one single cause; we’re about a place and its people.
“Through us people can choose which significant local projects and causes to invest in to help transform our community.
“Trustees are very grateful to these generous local people. With their support we continue to be able to reach further into our local communities.”
Gifts benefit people in all corners of the Rotorua District communities, including Reporoa and Murupara.
A second awards function took place in Taupo last week.
Geyser has distributed more than $161,000 on behalf of generous local people this financial year.
