Bumper toy boost for the kids


Playtime is about to become a lot more fun for many local preschoolers following a $4000 grant to the Wakatipu 

Toy Library by the SkyCity Queenstown Casino Community Trust. 

Sampling some of the new purchases are trust chair Clark Pirie and librarian Samantha Fisk with local toddlers (from left) Gwynie Fisk, 4, Allie Fisk, 2, Charlie Hansen, 1 and Brooke Hansen, 2. 

Other purchases include a bouncy castle for party hire, some DVDs and books. 

The toy lending library, at the old Queenstown Motor Park store, has about 850 toys for its 153 member families.
The grant will also help send two committee members to a volunteers training weekend in Christchurch.
The casino trust’s next funding round opens in June.
