Snazzy suitcases for fab fundraiser

Coresteel South Canterbury has helped make one small boy’s dreams come true this month.

Cameron Hunter was selected to participate in the annual Koru Care trip to Disneyland for children with special needs. Cameron suffers from cerebral palsy and has a special mobility tricycle to help him get around.

“Koru Care will take Cameron to Disneyland with a group of 23 other special needs children,” explains Heather Harding, Coresteel South Canterbury.

“Koru Care will pay for most things, but the families were advised they needed to supply an uber-large suitcase to carry all the goodies home and also that they needed to have roughly US$500 for spending money. That’s actually quite a big ask for many of these families.”

Coresteel South Canterbury purchased the suitcase of Cameron’s choosing and had it decorated by local designers, Corporate Print. “Cameron loves his new case,” says Heather. “He’s going to enjoy trailing that around the world!”

Cameron also held a trike-a-thon and raffle to help raise funds. “We actually raised more than we needed,” says his mum, Kate Hunter. “We’re thrilled because we’ll give the extra to Koru Care as a thank you gesture.”
