The Little Fighters Charitable Trust offers support to families who have a child with a life threatening illness, or where a parent has a life threatening illness that affects the child or children, whether it be financial or non-monetary services, our aim to focus assistance where needed to each family.
Whether it is financial help in the way of donations, sponsorship or fundraising, volunteering your time or joining us, every little bit helps and everyone can make a difference.
Its long been a dream to help out a fellow charity that supports many of our Taranaki families that have a child under the care of Starship Hospital in Auckland. Ronald McDonald house is home to a lot of our local families and we are proud to have raised money to sponsor a room in Auckland. This was a 2 year project to raise 80'000 to secure sponsorship. Here are some photos from the presentation ceremony.
Five tattooists tattooed for 10 hours straight on Sunday to raise thousands of dollars for children in need.
Kim Seng, "Mean" Gene Martin and Gary Wood, from Brothers Ink, teamed up with Paul Gledhill and Matt Perry from Ink & Anchor tattoo studios and ran a "flash day" to raise money for Little Fighters Trust.
They raised a MASSIVE $5100 for us and we cannot me more grateful to all the guys involved. Without people like them we would not be able to help the families that we do.
They also collected childrens presents and donated them to the charity The Gift. Huge hearts!!
From all the Team at Little Fighters Trust - THANK YOU!!
