As you would be aware the contracts we have to provide services do not cover the extra costs we require to be able to deliver the high quality service we strive to do on a daily basis. So we are always looking at different way of raising the extra funds needed. Here are a couple of new initiative’s we have introduced and hope that you support us and will tell everyone else you know to come support Arohanui and the work we do.
The Next-Door Gallery
At our Greerton Centre a space became available next door to our existing centre so we have leased the ground floor and put in a designated pottery/art workshop at the rear and in the front we have created an art gallery to display and sell some of the art products that everyone has been doing.
We have a wide range of mosaics, pottery and other art forms for sale at very reasonable prices
We also have a collection of pieces from the Bethlehem pottery club some donated and some on commission which is something we want to encourage for any community artist out there who would like somewhere to display and sell their works.
So tell all your friends and family and pop into the Next-Door Gallery at our Greerton centre and pick yourself up a piece of unique original art. The gallery is open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.
All money from sales will go directly back to the people we support and to assist with buying art resources.
The Entertainment Book
Many of you may be already aware of, and using the Entertainment Book which has hundreds of valuable up to 50% off and 2 for 1 offers for many best restaurants, arts, attractions, hotels, travel, shopping and more. I have been using this book and can testify that you can get a lot more from it than the cost of the book which is $60.
An extra this year is they have gone mobile and you can download the app onto your phone so you don’t have to carry the book about.
Arohanui is now selling these books and will receive 20% from each sale. If you would like to purchase one you can go to our website www.arohanuitrust.co.nz and click on the tab support us.
Or you can ring Gaye in our office on 579-4603 as we have some books for sale on site.
Please remember that we are a registered charitable trust and if you do wish to purchase any art, an entertainment book or just make a donation you can claim it back against your tax. Just let us know and we will arrange a receipt for you.
