Hundreds of visitors donned their winter woollies to visit Staglands for a gold coin donation entry on Sunday, June 26.Thanks to their determi- nation to make the most of the open day, the money raised was donated to the Nga Manu Trust for developing their kiwi breed- ing facilities. Staglands were part of the Wellington Open Day, which Positively Wellington Tourism organised to profile the range of tourist attractions that this region has to offer. The idea was to encourage locals to visit the attractions so that during the Rugby World Cup they can encourage visitors to get out and enjoy what Wellington has to offer. Staglands was the only par- ticipant from the Hutt Valley and the response was excellent considering the poor weather on the day, says general manager Sarah Purdy. A message that we're always trying to get across at this time of the year is that there is no such thing as bad weather -- just the wrong clothes,'' Ms Purdy says. It was really good to see so many people come up here despite the weather and I would think that PWT will be thrilled with the response from the pub- lic.'' As one of the few privately owned reserves in New Zealand, Staglands is not set up as a trust. Donations from the public on the day had to go towards a nominated charity, so the Nga Manu Trust in Waikanae was chosen. Over the past 39 years we've developed a positive relation- ship with Bruce and his team of dedicated helpers at the Nga Manu Reserve and so when we were asked to nominate a char- ity by PWT it was an easy decision,'' says Sarah. I like to think of our relation- ship with Bruce and the team at Nga Manu as more of a friend- ship than anything, and it's a great example of how two busi- nesses in the same industry can work together in a mutually beneficial way.'' Nga Manu have implemented some wonderful native species programmes over the years and we are always supportive of their work, just as they are of ours.'' Bruce Benseman, manager at the Nga Manu Reserve, was pleased to be the benefactor of the donations and plans to put the money towards new breed- ing pens for their kiwis.
