The Mr Whanganui Charity Fundraiser

Thursday 17 Aprilmr whanganui


Whanganui CBD

What could be better than combining shopping and raising money for deserving charities? We have combined a sale, late night shopping, great food and drink specials at local eateries and fundraising for fantastic local charities all into one fun night out! Come down to the CBD and purchase Mr Whanganui $1 bills from marked stalls along Victoria Avenue. Then visit all the men standing in shop windows representing charitable and community groups. Vote for your favourite by giving them your dollar bills. At the end of the night all the men will exchange their bills for actual cash money to donate to the charity of their choice. The man with the most bills will win a further $500 donation to their charity and the title of ‘Mr Whanganui 2014.’ Who will win your vote?

Beautification Action Group - Recruiting Creative Individuals Now!

Over the past few years there has been a lot of discussion about Majestic Square, signage and Christmas. Completed just over 10 years ago Majestic Square is not only starting to look a little tired but we also have now had ten years to observe how the community use the space and therefore how we might improve it to the community’s benefit. Just as the creation of the square required lots of creative input and fundraising so too will an upgrade of the space so we need your help. Mainstreet wishes to establish a working committee to achieve three main objectives:

1. To work through and finalise an up grade plan for Majestic Square.

2. To assist with a ‘Walk Wanganui’ signage strategy for the CBD begin- ning with two signs that will direct visitors from the i-Site to CBD attrac- tions.

3. To work through a plan for financially achievable, locally made Christmas

Decorations for our CBD. We want our decorations to be unique and our CBD beautiful at Christmas time.

If you want to put your creative brain or passion for decorating to good use and have time to commit to meeting at least once a month as well as doing some leg work in the community to further concepts and ideas then we need you.
