Interislander's Open Day raises $10,000

23 August 2005

Interislander's Kaitaki Public Open Day raises $10,000 for Neonatal Trust

Wellingtonians arrive for the Interislander's Kaitaki Public Open Day on Saturday

More than 10,000 Wellingtonians turned up to view the Interislander's newest ferry, Kaitaki, for the official public open day on Saturday, raising more than $10,000 for the Neonatal Trust.

Young and old turned up from far and wide to look onboard the new 1,600 passenger ferry which features three restaurants, a themed bar and Italian-style coffee bar, a play area, cinema, and day cabins. Many had the opportunity to go on the Bridge and meet the crew.

Divisional General Manager of Toll Shipping, Paul Garaty, was pleased with the success of the open day and the gold coin donations made to the day's charity.

Wellingtonians go onboard the Interislander's new Kaitaki ferry via the vehicle entrance at the Kaitaki Public Open Day on Saturday.

"It was an incredible family day and we were thrilled with the response and interest we had from the public. We're so thankful for Wellington's generosity in supporting the Neonatal Trust."

Patrons of Neonatal Trust, Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger were overwhelmed by Wellington's support.

"The Neonatal Trust would like to thank the thousands of Wellingtonians who turned up and donated money, and also the contributors and suppliers to the day who donated not only money, but very generously donated their time as well. In particular, we'd like to thank Martin Weekes and the Interislander team, and also the crew of Kaitaki for their incredible support."

The Neonatal Trust is a registered charity that provides a support network for parents who have or have had a child in the neonatal unit, and also raises funds to provide these services and purchase much needed specialised equipment for the Neonatal unit.
