Kiwi Family Trust
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Phil Lash and Chocolate Velvet for all the support and encouragement they have given to the Kiwi Family Trust over the last 6 years. The help that we have received has meant that we can bring life skills and communication courses to a wide range of Kiwi families, youth, children and individuals nationwide. Because of the generosity of Chocolate Velvet’s support has also meant that we have been able to take more underprivileged children away on camp.
Our heartfelt thanks Phil, and Chocolate Velvet, without people and organisations like you, we wouldn’t be able to continue with the work we do.
Summit Rescue Helicopter
This is something that is close to us and our Family as we have had the misfortune to use this service (If you know what i mean). My Father and i were on a day walk at the Cobb dame area when my Father slipped and broke his leg, we were about 2 hours walk from the car and we couldn't more him very far. The sound of a helicopter when you are in that situation is a great sound of relief. We were winched straight of the track where we were sitting . Every since then Chocolate Velvet has been a sponsor of the Rescue Helicopter . Read more at Helicopter Biscuit Fund Raiser
