PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS Groups benefit from travellers’ generosity • By Bridget Rutherford The Star FOURTEEN COMMUNITY groups and projects have collectively received more than $25,000 to aid them with their initiatives. The money came partly from travellers coming and going from Christchurch Airport. International and domestic travellers, as well airport visitors, can put money in the donation box. Those donations are collected, converted and put into the fund before the airport tops it up with a large donation. Last week’s recipients included CCS Disability Action, to fund a free community concert, Canterbury Charity Hospital for a community garden, Learn Active towards a vehicle to transport students to education events, and Watch This Space, which is a website that helps people locate street art in the city. International Track and Field Trust got funding to buy a mobile pole vault run-up for athletics meetings. Canterbury Athletics coach Bill Boyd said they hoped to use the run-up for athletics events, such as The Big Shot, which runs in the central city. He said the funding would help attract more people to the sport, which had become more widely known since pole vaulter Eliza McCartney won bronze at the Rio Olympics last year. “It just means the sport’s able to be accessible and portable so we can run it anywhere.” Other recipients included Neighbourhood Trust, Quilt Symposium, Phillipstown Community Hub, Shakti Ethnic Women’s Support, CoCA, Citizens Advice Bureau, Home and Family Society and Oxford Football Club. Special Children’s Christmas Party, which the airport has supported through the fund over the last couple of years, was also among the recipients. Airport chief aeronautical and commercial officer Justin Watson said there was a record number of applicants for this round. He said the fund aimed to support groups and projects that made a tangible difference in their community. The groups and projects spoke passionately of the work they did in their communities, he said. Applications for funding from the grant are open twice a year, and groups and projects can apply for the funds. •The next round of applications open on September 8.
