The Rotary Club of Wanaka New Year book sale has resulted in a $7,000 donation to Mount Aspiring College (MAC).
The donation was formally made to new college principal Nicola Jacobsen at the Rotary Clubs weekly meeting on Tuesday (16 March).
The book sale, which took place at the beginning of January, was organised to help raise funds for support services at MAC and the MAC community assisted at the sale.
“I’m delighted to accept this cheque,” said Nicola. “We enjoy a wonderful collaboration with the Rotary Club of Wanaka and I’m pleased to see our collective effort at the book sale reap such a generous reward. It will be put to good use.”
Rotary Club of Wanaka president Mike Elliot said the sale was more successful than anticipated and he was delighted to make such a significant donation.
“Book sales take a lot of organising and I thank club members and the MAC community who assisted make this event such a success,” said Mike.
Nicola took the opportunity to address club members after the presentation and share her vision for Mount Aspiring College.
The Rotary Club of Wanaka is planning its next book sale in July this year (16-18 July) at the Lake Wānaka Centre.
