A busy fundraising year

The last half of 2017 continued with an array of charities, community groups, clubs and schools spending numerous hours of planning to roll out their worthy fundraising events.

Every year Barker’s are delighted to be able to assist groups by way of product sponsorship adding flavour and flair to gift baskets, raffle items, drinks stalls and catering tents across New Zealand. Not everything we sponsor is a fund-raiser, we also help out with other activities like sporting events, cultural activities and youth camps, for example.

A big shout out to:
  • The ANZ Call centre who held a mega raffle raising funds for Daffodil Day raising $1500 and a recent Pink Ribbon Breakfast raised $4000 for the NZBCF.
  • Geraldine Primary School held their Dancing with the Stars event and enjoyed our products in cheese platters and syrups for drinks. The total money raised will be around $13,000 which will be used to directly benefit the children of school. It’s great to be involved in these valuable community events.
  • Manawatu Overtones (singing group) who raised over $1100 from their quiz night!
