Art River Jet's locals' day raised $2717 for Glenorchy
School's Enviro Project.
The money will be used to help ''kick-start'' the school's
efforts to enhance its outdoor area and install a shaded sand
School principal Esther Hamilton said it was an ''absolute
honour'' to accept the cheque.
''The fundraising process is usually lengthy and so the funds
will accelerate the work we want to do to provide a better
environment for our children,'' she said.
Dart River Jet operations manager Callan Grimmer said each
year the company was ''blown away'' by the generosity shown
at the locals' day, which had raised thousands for local
groups over the years.
''It's so important to give back to our community and we look
forward to the day each year.
''Our trip is regarded as one of New Zealand's most
sensational journeys and by coming and experiencing it
first-hand, locals have helped out a very good cause,'' he
