Pete Whalan, Principal Licencee at Bayleys Canterbury, said he firmly believes in the importance of education in building the future of our Canterbury community.
“The reality is a school uniform is a huge expense for many families, some high school uniforms can cost as much as $1,000 and primary school uniforms, and sports uniforms are a big cost – especially when a family has two or more children” Whalan said.
Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose has underpinned the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School Programme since 2019 and is built on fun, food and fundraising.
“Like our partnership with the Crusaders, Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose is another way in which Bayleys Canterbury gives back to the communities that give so generously to us,” Whalan said.
