Project Funding

To help fund our work the volunteer committee also sell a range of photo cards, and a specially designed tea towel at some local shops or via this website.


There are 5 different cards plus envelopes for $10. They are blank inside and therefore useful for a range of occasions. Below is a sample of the photos on the cards. These cards can be purchased at the Waikouaiti Library, Hammer Hardware (Waikouaiti) or by e-mailing t.mckewen@clear.net.nz 


In addition donations to our projects at the lagoon are always welcome and very much appreciated.


Donations can be made to: Acc 03 1737 0020799 00.
