One project Chris Bishop has been working is the Wainui Futures programme. It's a youth development programme run in Wainui that changes young boys' lives through sport, run by local Wainui legend Bill "Sharpie" Sharp (former premier trainer at the Wainui Rugby League Club). The programme involves fitness, breakfast, and study. For the last 10 years, twice a week, volunteers have picked boys up from around the community at 5am. They then undertake a fitness session in the gym at Wainui High before having a breakfast and a lesson in life skills.

The programme is run on the smell of an oily rag; and has had incredibly positive, tangible outcomes for Wainui young people. The programme is facing challenges with financial support and so I'm looking to help Sharpie out by raising funds to cover the basic costs of supplying breakfasts - an essential part of the programme itself.

Join us for breakfast & find out more.
Continental breakfast $13
Cooked breakfast $18
