Fundraising focus of scheme
By LOUISE BERWICK
A group of enterprising students are
paying it forward.
A Verdon College year 10 business
studies class is taking part in the
community enterprise project as
part of their school work but one
group are taking it a step further.
Maggie Harrington, Olivia Thorn-
bury and Lucy Brown, all 15, have
come up with a business plan and
fundraising scheme to help the
Southland SPCA after seeing their
plea for food in The Eye last week.
The girls are now entering their idea
in the community enterprise compe-
tition in the hope of winning $1000 to
support the SPCA.
The competition encourages year
seven to 10 students to come up with
a business plan to help support a
community group in their area.
They work with the organisation to
identify an issue, and the students
then work in teams to create a plan
to solve the problem. Despite their
hopes of winning the nation-wide
competition the girls have a back
plan in case they don't.
Miss Harrington said they had each
taken on roles in the group and had
liaised with the SPCA to see what
they needed, what they would spend
$1000 on and how they could help.
The SPCA identified their lack of
food and need for a tooth cleaner for
the animals as two major issues.
The girls then decided they would
take to the streets themselves to
raise $1000 by selling scratchy
boards and collecting donations and
Their teacher, head of social
sciences, Tara Quinney said the
project tied in well with the school's
character the girls were working
hard to help the organisation.
It was the first time her class had
taken part in the competition but it
had been so successful they hope to
do it again next year.
Time to register for
local govt elections
It's local government election time
but hundreds of people are going to
miss out on having their say after
being removed from the electoral
roll. About 70,000 local election
enrolment packs have bounced back
to Registrars of Electors marked
'gone no address.'
Of those thousands of people, 841 are
from the Invercargill City electorate
and 457 from the Southland District.
Invercargill electorate registrar of
electors Carol Baxter said the
returned packs meant some people
were missing out on the opportunity
to vote and encouraged people to
register to vote to be able to have
their say. People have until August
16 to enrol in time to receive their
voting packs in the mail.
People who have moved or need to
update their details can do it by
going online at elections.org.nz, or
freetext their name and address to
