Ryman Annual Charities
Another strong year across the Company was capped by the successful fundraising of $230,000 for Macular Degeneration New Zealand. Our residents and staff raised $115,000 which was matched dollar for dollar by the company.
Some of the most successful events this year were auctions, market days, quiz nights, movie afternoons and concerts to name just a few! This is the 15th year the company has raised funds for charity, and our residents and staff are very proud that over these years their fundraising efforts have topped $1.7 million.
Our charity for the coming year is The Cancer Society. In addition to each of the villages supporting their own local community organisations, a number hosted concerts to raise funds for the Dame Malvina Major Foundation again this year.
