Kaurilands Fundraiser - Tote Bags

Did you love the tea towel with the bus blind design with all our local street names? Te Whānau Āwhina's next fundraising effort is a tote bag using the same design.

We are using the same popular bus blind design screen-printed onto a calico tote bag. The dimensions are w38 by h42 cm.

We are selling tote bags perfect for both kids and adults. These bags are super handy for Library books, swimming togs or grocery items. One bag for $15, each additional tote bag will be $10. Please order your tote bag on Kindo today.

The ongoing lockdowns over the last couple of years have severely impacted our fundraising opportunities. We’re really hoping you'll once again support our efforts to raise much needed funds for our loved school.

Tote bags are only available for a limited time, make sure you don’t miss out.


Kia ora Kaurilands whānau

Te Whānau Āwhina have been given the opportunity to do some fundraising via these beautiful Shortbread Boxes. A friend of the school has supplied these to us via the Herb & Spice Mill.

This is a fabulous, packaged product and you just need to add butter to create some delicious shortbread cookies. Each box comes with its own star cookie cutter. They are super simple to make and a great kids activity (perhaps during some long isolation days!), or to give away as a gift.

We are selling these packs for $12 for one, and $10 for any additional packs. They retail for between $16.50-$19.50 so it’s a great price for our school.

  • Best Before Date is February 2023
  • Pack size: 435g
  • Ingredients: Flour, Cornflour (Maize), Cane Sugar, Maize Starch

Made in New Zealand from local and imported ingredients. Allergen Info: Wheat. Baked cookie contains milk. Packed in a factory that also packs products containing Milk, Eggs, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Soy, Fish, Sesame and Gluten.

Thanks so much for your support – we really appreciate it!!
