Awareness Week, Chocky Fish, Seleni Wine Fundraiser,

Welcome to the July edition of E news.  Surrounded by boxes of chocolate fish, balloons and buckets, can mean only one thing and that is that our Annual Awareness week is on the horizon.  We are busy trying to recruit as many volunteers as possible so we can make sure that this years Awareness Week is the best yet.  We have plenty of collection sites confirmed but this is only useful if we have people to help.  PLEASE HELP US. Can you spare an hour or so over the collection days (Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August) to help us. We need more helpers in Titarangi, Mount Eden, Ponsonby, Takapuna, Milford, Albany, Waiuku and Henderson.   Rustle up some friends and family to lend hand, the more sites we get covered the more fundraising we do and gives us also the chance to spread the word about CF. Please make contact if you are able to volunteer or have a contact that you think is worth us getting in touch with. Email Kath or on ph 3790374
The Chocky Fish have arrived and are ready for dispatch.  Please contact Amanda or Kath at the CF Auckland office, to get your box.  This is a great little fundraiser as part of our Awareness week.  Fish sell for only $1 with 45 cents from every fish going to CF Auckland.  Take them to work, school, sell them around the neighborhood or just pop them in the cupboard and eat them yourself!


We have a special offer for your family, friends and community.  These are delicious wines at unbeatable prices and Sileni Estates will donate $40.00 (incl GST) per case back to Auckland Cystic Fibrosis.
Included in this offer are some superb wines to enjoy over the winter months, extremely quaffable and perfect for a mid-winter Christmas.
Wine can be ordered by the bottle or by the case.
See attached  info and  forms for wine details and how to order.
Offer closes on 29 July 2016

Seeking - Grant's Co-Ordinator

Auckland Branch applies for many grants throughout the year to assist us in being able to continue our support and services to our PWCF and families. One example is last year we received $10,000 toward equipment costs – we were able to purchase Pari Compressors, Pari PEP's and other vital equipment.    We have applied to various organisations for Breath4CF - Auckland PWCF receive annually approximately $15,000 from this fund.  We have in a previous year received a grant for the parking vouchers that PWCF and families receive at clinic.  

Our current grants co-ordinators are taking a break and we need one or two people to share the voluntary role with the Auckland Branch Co-Ordinator, Kath - to be able to continue the level of support for our community. It may not be you but a couple of friends or family members who have some time and would enjoy the challenge and making a difference. Kath  has the job description, please give her or myself a call if you would like to find out more.
