PLATE UP FOR A PURPOSE

CHARITY DINNER

We’re fortunate to work alongside Bayleys Canterbury, who dedicate their partnership with us to delivering a variety of community-based initiatives throughout the region.

Helping struggling families meet school costs for uniforms, shoes, and stationery, Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose has underpinned the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School Programme – this means that every year, hundreds of children are given their best practical start at school, something they wouldn’t otherwise have had. Every year we host a charity dinner event, encouraging businesses from across the greater canterbury area to roll up their sleeves and join our plate up for a purpose fundraiser.

 

We want every child in Canterbury to have the tools they need to go to school with confidence and get the best possible start in life.

 

For two years, business leaders from Canterbury’s biggest businesses have rolled up their sleeves and stepped into the kitchen to Plate Up for a Purpose and raised funds for the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School programme. Back to School helps struggling families meet school costs for uniforms, shoes, and stationery.

The fight against children living without the tools they need to succeed in school was the big winner at our last Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose event. It was successful because the community was right behind backing our business leaders and we thank them for that.
