Three Kawau Island community groups have shared $20,000, the proceeds of the second annual and hugely successful Music in the Gardens community event held in February.

Cr Penny Webster presented cheques to Kawau Volunteer Coastguard for the purchase of a new tractor and pontoons for the rescue craft, Kawau Emergency Rescue Trust to supplement emergency equipment around the island, and the Kawau Boating Club for an emergency generator and a better sound system.

More than 800 people attended the event held at Mansion House, which was organised by Organisations Passionate About Kawau (OPAK). Plans are already well advanced for next year’s event which will be held on February 13.
