RiverRidge Retreat Announces Successful Fundraiser

RiverRidge Retreat Announces Successful Fundraiser for Diabetic Child

Some stalls and displays at the fundraiser

The RiverRidge Retreat Company, which offers accommodation and venue hire in the Catlins, Otago, New Zealand is pleased to announce a successful fundraiser event for Hadley, a diabetic boy.

The event was held in September 2012 and was able to raise funds to purchase an insulin pump for Hadley.

“This kind of event just shows the strong community spirit for this great cause we have here and most importantly we raised enough for little Hadley to get his insulin pump”

Quote from Adele at The Retreat
The fundraiser included various stalls and displays showing cloths, children’s toys, makeup, art and jewellery.

Relaxing massages and makeovers were also being given throughout the day, which proved to be very popular.
