Trust Nursery wins Supreme Award
Thursday 20th September, 2007The Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust Nursery was announced the Supreme Award winner at the Trust Power Dunedin Community Awards ceremony in Dunedin on 3rd September 2007. The Trust received $1500 and the opportunity to represent the city at the 2007 Trust Power National Community Awards in Wanaka in March next year. The trust beat 76 other groups nominated for the awards.
Our Nursery Co-Manager Anita Pillai said, "It was very humbling to win the award - a complete surprise and it was a huge thrill for all the Trust's volunteers." The nursery produced more than 10,000 plants last year to sow around the coast on private and Trust land".
We think it was well deserved too.
