DUNCANNON EVENTS & UPDATES
WINNERS OF THE 2012 ROTARY CHARITY YACHT RACE – WAIKAWA BAY, PICTON
It was a beautiful clear day out on the water on Saturday 10th March 2012 when businesses and boaties teamed up to raise money to support community work in Christchurch. 13 teams raced around the course, firing off water bombs as they passed each other. ‘Summer Wine’ crewed by our Duncannon staff won the race! Everyone had a fun day and it was great to help raise money for such a good cause. Well done team!
THANK YOU TO OUR GUESTS FOR HELPING US SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITIES
Duncannon’s charity bus run service takes guests to and from the supermarket for a $1 donation. Each year Duncannon donates all of the money collected from guests to a charity chosen by our staff. For 2012, we collected a total of $725 with half donated to Marlborough Women’s Refuge, New Zealand’s most significant domestic violence organization and half to the Marlborough SPCA, a dedicated nonprofit organisation dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals. Both of these charities were extremely grateful for our donations, every little bit counts!
2013 FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT
Duncannon’s large recreation field is situated right next to the beautiful Opawa River and has hosted many football games for guests to get together for a bit of friendly competition. Our 2013 football tournament saw eight teams battle it out but it was one of our Vanuatu teams that took the win. Thanks to guests, Marek and Steffi for all their help during the match. We look forward to the next tournament!
