We are an active branch with fundraising events each year to raise the money we need to support people with CF in our area. Among many small fundraising ventures we sell the Entertainment Book, attend the Kowhai Festival in Warkworth, and coordinate awareness week activities. We are also hosting a movie night this year to give everyone the opportunity to meet with other parents of children with CF. We also hold regular coffee mornings which provide a wonderful, relaxed, opportunity to mingle and share ideas.
We publish three Community Newsletters each year which are posted to all Auckland members. The newsletter contains:· Articles from our community
· Lots of photos· Updates from Auckland and Starship hospitals
· Branch news and diary dates· Summaries from conferences and other events
· Branch, National, Starship and Auckland Hospital contact details
· Thanks for our sponsors and supporters
We also run the odd competition for photos, recipes or fundraising ideas.
We have an Auckland website with regular updates on our events, fundraising ideas, Branch news and a whole heap of information aimed to inform and assist people and families living with CF. Please have a look at www.cfauckland.org.nz If you have any ideas for the website please contact us.
