Our annual fundraisers - we'd love to see you there
Lifeskills Day- Annual
FIRST TUESDAY OF NOVEMBER - EACH YEAR
During the month of November Lifeskills Counsellors work with schools for fundraising on behalf of Lifeskills. Each school is responsible for coming up with their own creative event which could be a mufti day, wacky hair day, cycle day etc.
Businesses, you too can hold any fundraising event - shared lunch, multi-colour dress up day, baking cupcakes and selling them - every bit helps. Remember - it takes a village to raise a child.
All funds raised go directly to paying our dedicated professional counsellors at Cambridge Lifeskills.
Lifeskills Day - Tuesday 5 November, 2021
Waipa Fun Run - Annual
In 2014 Cambridge Lifeskills was the chosen charity partner for the St Peter's Catholic Schools PTFA's Waipa Fun Run and has been for the last four years running.
This event is held annually - generally in March - and encourages all Cambridge school students, parents and businesses to enter and take part.
The Cambridge Lifeskills counselling team are on hand that day to help with the marshalling.
Over the last 4 years Cambridge Lifeskills has received over $2500.00 through the generosity of Waipa Fun Run's committee - and we're truly appreciative.
