My application to Creative New Zealand for assistance with funding the poetry cards has been successful! This means we have another year of poetry cards and at least one braille booklet. I’m sure we’ll manage to find sponsors so we can produce four braille booklets next year. Thank you Creative New Zealand.
Special thanks to Colin, Fiona and Bruce for your letters of support which accompanied the application and to every one who wrote/emailed during the past year congratulating us on our project. Every letter and email does make a difference. It boosts our enthusiasm levels and makes us more determined to hunt for funding so the project can continue and expand.
This season we’ve quietly added Mid Central North Island to our database. Cards have been sent to medical practices and rest homes in Palmerston North, Feilding, Dannevirke, Pahiatua, Otaki, Levin and Foxton.
