Our annual fundraisers - we'd love to see you there

Lifeskills Day- Annual


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.

Save the date for the next fun run:
2021 date TBC

Past Fundraisers held by Cambridge Lifeskills

Cambridge Lifeskills Easter Egg Hunt

This year we held the Inaugural Easter Egg Hunt at The Boat Shed Cafe.

The team at The Boat Shed Cafe came up with the idea and all funds raised were donated to Cambridge Lifeskills.

With over 350 donated easter eggs the 100+ children who attended went away with a great stash.

We thank the generous sponsors who provided easter eggs, party favours and lollies for the event as well as the staff at the Boat Shed Cafe for your enthusiam on the day.

Good in the Hood

Cambridge Lifeskills was one of the lucky recipients of 'Good in the Hood' at Cambridge Z Service Station.

When you paid for your petrol you got a chip and could use it to vote of one Cambridge organisation.

Cambridge Lifeskills was the lucky recipient of $645.
Thanks Z

Christmas Wrapping

A great way to connect with the community at a stressful time of year - Christmas.

The Cambridge Lifeskills team enjoys the opportunity to wrap The Warehouses customers presents for a gold coin donation.

We're very lucky to have team that is happy to spend a couple of hours on the gift wrapping station. 

21st Celebration

Unbelievably Cambridge Lifeskills celebrates their 21st birthday this year.  There have been times in the past when the continuation of the organisation has been uncertain due to dire financial situations but today due to hard work on the part of many people we are in a more secure financial situation.  Katie Schick and Sarah Griffin from the Lake Karapiro Boatshed have generously agreed to host a birthday celebration for us on August 9th.  This will be a wonderful evening with many milestones to acknowledge and celebrate and we hope past Board members and counsellors will be there to enjoy the celebration. 
Purchase your ticket today at either Boat Shed Cafe or Cambridge Real Estate.
