NGATI KONOHI WHANAU
Ko Pukehapopo te maunga, Ko Waiomoko te awa, Ko Whitireia raua ko Waho te Rangi nga wharenui, Ko Paikea te tangata, Ko Ngati Konohi te iwi
Whangara marae restoration project NEEDS their whanau to help fundraise for the restoration of the wharepaku. the Paikea Whitireia Trustees have managed to fundraise for the majority of the money required to complete the much needed ablution block. This is a message to all of our whanau to get in behind this project. To date both wharenui have been upgraded and we have expended our first grants on protecting these (fire safety sprinklers etc) our second stage is the wharepaku (to be completed this year), and finally our wharekai will be next. The day to day expenses of running our marae are such that we are having to call upon you all for help. We are continuing to tap into other funders also and have been successful with a number of them however, we are also having to firstly raise one third of the the money sought from Lotteries. For more information please contact myself or other members of the Trust - our PO Box is 3113, Gisborne. This is not a "scam" but a request to our whanau - I do not wish to be receiving any funds personally - as Aunty Hae is the treasurer please direct your pledges to her. For our wharepaku alone we are looking at raising a further $70,000. Nga mihi mahana ki a koutou me to whanau hoki. Na, Sher Green (Deputy Chairperson - Paikea Whitireia Trust)
