Raffle raises money for parenting roopu

Toitoi Manawa is the name of the group of people who meet every Wednesday in the lounge at Single Parent Services Waikato.   It is a cheerful group of women (and the occasional man) who meet to do a variety of activities, from weaving harakeke to tukutuku panels, to making korowai.  They frequently run fundraising activities to purchase the materials for the group, and most recently ran an Easter raffle that raised over $140.  They have their sights set very high though!!  Pictured here is Marie Hutchinson from the Trust, and one of the Toitoi Manawa participants, Georgina, holding the awesome bundle of goodies that went to one of the ticket holders this Easter.
