Cat Rescue Christchurch Charitable Trust #CC37699

Cat Rescue Christchurch Charitable Trust is located in Christchurch, New Zealand, and focuses on reducing stray cat overpopulation by using the trap, neuter, return (TNR) method. Stray kittens who are under 8 weeks of age are socialised, desexed and rehomed.

Cat Rescue Christchurch also promotes the desexing of companion and stray cats whom people are feeding, and the early desexing of kittens before being rehomed from any adoption facility.

Cat Rescue Christchurch relies on donations from generous people to fund its work. We do not have a shelter but instead have volunteers who foster and socialise our cats and kittens in their own homes until they are ready for their forever homes.

Over 6100 cats have been desexed or rescued and rehomed by Cat Rescue Christchurch since our organisation was founded in 2006, preventing many thousands more unwanted cats from being born.

Community Hospice Service Eastern Bay of Plenty

Hospice is not a building; it is a philosophy of care. Our goal is to help people make the most of their lives.

We care for the whole person, not just their physical needs but also their emotional, spiritual, and social needs too. We care for family / whānau and friends as well, both before and after a death. Irrespective of where they are, this philosophy of care does not change and everything we provide is free of charge.

We believe that hospice care should be available to anyone who needs it, helping people make the most of every moment, in whatever way works for them.

Care is provided at patients’ homes throughout the Eastern Bay of Plenty, in consultation with their GP.

We support patients and their whānau to:

  • be cared for at home

  • live each day as fully as possible

  • die with dignity in the place of their choice

Leg-Up Trust #CC32010

The seeds of Leg-Up were sown when Ros Rowe set up a small horse trekking business in 1999 to help a suicidal young woman get back on her feet by giving her a job. The trekking business did well but the casual way in which clients rode the horses didn’t sit well with the operators, and inspired the term ‘hairy bicycle syndrome’. To address this concern half day Horse Sense sessions were offered in which participants learned about the nature of horses which transcended merely riding them and these became very successful.

When the young woman finally found her feet and was ready to face life again, Ros felt the aim of the trekking business had been fulfilled and therefore prepared to close the business. However, there was an outcry from groups of at-risk youth and mental health clients who had found the Horse Sense sessions beneficial, so Ros closed the business and set up the Leg-Up Trust to meet the expressed needs of these people.

The point of difference in Leg-Up’s approach which succeeds where all else has failed lies in the use of horses as teachers. Where human beings may be suspect in the view of abused and neglected children, the horses pose no such risk to damaged souls. They keep their own counsel, offer what is perceived as unconditional love and do not judge. The students learn the basics of a relationship which has to supersede the predator/prey barrier, and through this become aware of how their actions influence those around them

One in five New Zealanders is living with a disability. That means approximately 150,000 young people with disabilities are facing considerable barriers in their lives. StarJam believes this is something that can be changed. Through music and performance workshops, StarJam reaches many of these young New Zealanders and provides opportunities for them to explore their talents, gain new skills and build confidence to try new things. Over the years, StarJam’s impact on Jammers (our young people) and their families has been phenomenal – inspiring self-belief and a sense of belonging, often for the very first time, resulting in a new zest for life and hope for the future. For many, StarJam has been a life-transforming experience.

  Littlemore Trust #CC53675
t’s our vision to see communities where every newborn is set for life. That’s why we’re helping families share the joy of parenting. We’re doing this by helping Kiwis pass on their pre-loved baby clothes and other baby essentials to families with newborns in need in Auckland. This may seem such a small thing, but every little piece of baby clothing, bedding, carseats & more that you donate, really does make a huge difference. So if you’ve got some gear that you’re thinking of passing on, here’s a massive thanks in advance from the little ones you’ll be helping.

Congratulations to this deserving charity.
