To ensure children in the greater Christchurch area go to bed warm
This is the objective of The Good Night Sleep Tight Charitable Trust which has been operating since March 2017.
To do this, they will provide winter sleepwear and bedding to children in need who have been referred by various agencies.
The Trust receives donations either financial or in goods and then distributes the sleepwear and bedding to those identified. They have even engaged two knitting groups to supply woollen blankets infant wear and beanies. The Trust will accept donations of 100% wool to pass on those groups.
Members of our Club were challenged to donate children’s sleepwear to the Good Night Sleep Tight Trust and if 20 pair were received then the Club would donate $2,000 to the Good Night Sleep Tight Trust.
This target was well and truly exceeded.
