In 2018, Real Journeys Queenstown Winter Festival will once again support local charities in their fundraising efforts, and would love you to support them as well.
The Queenstown Mountain Bike Club are being supported by the Mitre 10 MEGA DIY Funduro at the Festival Village on Saturday 24 June.
Queenstown Rotary Club are fundraising on behalf of Kiwi Harvest, and the funds will be used to assist them in the purchase of a refrigerated van which will distribute food, which would otherwise be wasted to needy Queenstown families, through both the Salvation Army and Happiness House.
This project has been initiated by the Sustainable Queenstown Charitable Trust. They are doing this by running the Queenstown Rotary Club Duck Race down Horne Creek on Sunday 24 June.
Remarkables Primary School will be selling glow sticks at the Real Journeys Friday Fireworks to enhance the experience, so look out for them, they will be hard to miss!
Please also support community group food vendors by purchasing delicious offerings of the food stalls at the Real Journeys Friday Fireworks.
QUEENSTOWN MOUNTAIN BIKE CLUB
WE TAKE BIKING SERIOUSLY
The Queenstown Mountain Bike Club formed in 2003, the main goal to develop the mountain biking trails and the biking community in Queenstown. Since 2003 the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club has been instrumental in the development of popular mountain bike areas such as the 7 Mile Bike Reserve, Rude Rock, Wynyard Bike Park, Gold Digger and Huck Yeah.
QUEENSTOWN ROTARY CLUB
The very worthy charitable cause this year is buying a refrigerated van to service an initiative which will collect reusable food waste from hotels, supermarkets and other businesses in the district (of which there is mountains!) and pass that food on to those in need through Happiness House and Salvation Army. This initiative is the brain child of Sustainable Queenstown Charitable Trust (https://www.facebook.com/sustainableQueenstown/ ) who have commandeered Kiwi Harvest ( http://kiwiharvest.org.nz/) to set up a Queenstown branch. This is a much needed service when we have an increasing number of families struggling to make ends meet with rising living and rent costs. The van is estimated to cost around $20,000.00.
