The Wānaka Community Toy Library is putting out an urgent plea. “All our toys are stored away upstairs in a barn. We need premises urgently. Please help!”
The WCTL lease ran out December 31, 2019 and they have been looking everywhere for suitable premises.
The Toy library has been in Wānaka for 25 years offering a valuable service to the wider Wānaka community including young local families, grandparents, educational facilities as well as holiday makers in the area. By providing toys of high standard and durability the children extend their basic physical, mental, sensory and perceptual skills.
WCTL has 125 active family members at the moment. “We are looking for a minimum of 50 – up to 70 sq metres with power and we are registered as a charitable organisation. We apply to various grants for funding to pay rent.”
If you have a space you could make available, please contact Arda Booiman ph 0274607972 with any information to get this amazing community group up and running again.
