Each year, A Taste of Matarangi Festival strives to give back towards charitable causes that benefit the community. Since its inception, the festival has raised $72,000 to it’s benefactors through fundraising initiatives and donations.
For the 2019 event, the organisers will once again be supporting the Kuaotunu Land Search & Rescue (KSAR). We are pleased to have them on board, as they work together to help save lives on the Coromandel Peninsula.
Kuaotunu Land Search & Rescue (KSAR) are the people who go out into the bush and remote areas all hours of the day and night looking for lost persons; they work alongside the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust service. The group runs on a professional basis and members are highly trained.
