Weekend raises $5500 for Stroke Foundation

The New Zealand Stroke Foundation received $5500 from the Kingston Flyer recently, after the hugely successful inaugural Kingston Flyer Weekend.

A $5 donation from each train ticket sold to ride New Zealand's famous vintage steam train at the weekend, held March 31 and April 1, went to the foundation, along with money raised through a sausage sizzle, bouncy castle, raffles and other donations.

Kingston Flyer managing director David Bryce said he was "delighted" to have been able to raise such a substantial amount of money. The funds raised will go towards the continuation of free field officer services in the South.
