Our Sponsors and Donors are critical to the wellbeing and development of Guthrie-Smith Tutira’s activities. The annual income from our investments and the willing help of volunteers help sustain the property however we are reliant on the financial support and other assistance we receive from our benefactors.
We are extremely grateful to many organisations and people who support our endeavours financially and who have enabled the Trust to create such a unique asset for the education and enjoyment of both young and old.
The trust is a registered charity and all donations are therefore tax deductible.
Guthrie-Smith Trust received $5,000 from First Light Community Foundation which contributed to the building of the Indoor Climbing Wall. Completed in 2018, the Climbing Wall has provided a new and challenging activity for school camps. It’s been well received by the schools and provides a stimulating and fun alternative activity, particularly when it’s too wet or wild to be outdoors.
We are being kindly supported by the local and national Tree Crops Association with a Pecan trial in the Arboretum. The Association kindly donated a beautiful wooden seat made by Peter Maclean, which is situated in the Australian section, overlooking the Arboretum.
