A special Long Lunch

A special Long Lunch will be the highlight of a new fundraising campaign to raise $300,000 to further re-establish kiwi and other native birds at the National Wildlife Centre, Pukaha Mount Bruce.

On Sunday April 11th a five course feast catering for more than 400 people will be held in a marquee at the Copthorne Resort Solway Park in Masterton. The special event will bring together supporters of the fundraising campaign dubbed “Flight of the Kiwi” as they dine on dishes made from fresh local produce and drink specially matched Wairarapa wines. There will also be live entertainment, a special guest and a charity auction. The Long Lunch will live up to its name, beginning at 12.30pm and winding up at 5.00pm.

All funds raised will be used to support the ongoing restoration of the Pukaha forest, the unfenced home to some of New Zealand’s most endangered birds. The funds will also assist with the translocation of up to 30 kiwi from Little Barrier Island to the Pukaha forest in May this year and a major upgrade of the kiwi nocturnal house.
