Hamilton’s McKenzie Centre has benefited for the second time this year from the generosity of Waikato Diocesan School students.

In May, Dio’s Young Enterprise Group Stripes and Stars Apparel handed over two Apple iPads to the McKenzie Centre from their Company’s profit. Yesterday, the Dio Events Team handed over a $2000 donation to the Centre from money raised through sausage sizzles at events and donations made at the school’s May Ball.

Head of Events, Kate Nicol-Williams said that the amazing work of the Centre really resonated with the group and it was rewarding to be able to give back to an organisation doing so much good in the community.

e McKenzie Centre is a specialised Early Intervention service, and a licensed Early Childhood Centre, for children under six years old who have special needs, and their families.

McKenzie Centre Director, Trisha Benge, said that the Centre was once again overwhelmed by the generosity of these outstanding young women in choosing to support McKenzie Centre in this way:“We were very humbled by the genuine interest shown by the Dio girls about the challenges our children and their families face, and it was wonderful to see their excitement at being able to support McKenzie Centre in this way. We feel very fortunate to have had such a significant amount of support from Waikato Diocesan in recent years.”
