Raising funds for Wairarapa Parents Centre

$$ Running for the cost of a cuppa coffee $$


Who doesn’t need to sit and chat over a cuppa every now and then. Talking things through, supporting and learning from each other just about sums up our parenting community doesn’t it.


Our amazing Childbirth Educator, Julia, would like to raise some funds for us. She’s been training hard for the Wellington Half Marathon at the end of June and she thought it would be great to run for a cause….. AND she’s chosen us as her cause.

She thought that asking for a donation based on “running for the cost of a cuppa” firstly wasn't out of reach for many of us and secondly it summed up why she’s still involved in Childbirth and Parenting Education after starting her CBE journey 17 years ago.

“I just love those connections that we make as new parents, they’re so precious. They help us in so many ways and I love being a part of that process”

We’d love it if you would donate to her cause – Wairarapa Parents Centre. All funds raised will go towards putting on a community parent education event for us to learn about how the babies brain grows and develops in the early years.


As a not for profit organisation we rely on raising funds and grants to enable us to provide our community with education. It will be great to be able to put down the funds raised by Julia’s running efforts as our contribution in our grant request.

If you’d like to donate see details below AND if you donate the price of a cuppa coffee AND a piece of cake (ie, $5.00 or more) then you can send we you an electronic tax receipt and you can claim this as a tax donation.
