A $36,000 grant from the Otago Community Trust will help establish a community facility for whanau in Milton.
The grant has been given to newly established charitable trust Te Whare Puawai o Tokomairaro, to help with the cost of purchasing a building in Spenser St.
The building will be a permanent whanau community whare that will be a central point for events, wananga, and other kaupapa Maori activities.
Otago Community Trust chairman Diccon Sim said to date there had never been a fit for purpose facility to serve as a hub for whanau in Milton.
"Gaining ownership of the property will provide an anchor for whanau in the Milton community,” he said.
