Kāpiti Women’s Centre receives $17,000 donation via fishing competition

Louise Waterworth’s mission is to help as many Kāpiti women as she possibly can – and a recent donation of more than $17,000 will contribute greatly to that goal.

Waterworth is the manager of the Kāpiti Women’s Centre, a service that helps women and children who have been victims of family violence by providing counselling, safehouses and funds for things like protection orders.

The donation of $17,015 came from the Texturite Reel Womens’ Kāpiti Classic fishing competition.

The competition, which was meant to be held earlier this month, was unfortunately cancelled due to bad weather – much to the disappointment of the 120 women who entered – but the night event still went ahead and saw over 250 people attend.
