The Wright Family Foundation supports SuperGrans Western Bay of Plenty Charitable Trust. The foundation’s support enabled the branch, based in Katikati, to launch in March 2017, paying for the salary of an establishment coordinator, as well as set-up and operation costs for a year.
SuperGrans is a national organisation that aims to share the skills and experience of people who have brought up families (‘SuperGrans’ and Grandads) with those who are just starting out. Mentors are trained and matched with individuals, groups or young families who could benefit from their guidance and support in their daily lives, typically with growing food, wise shopping, crafts, cooking or preparing for employment. SuperGrans’ mission of ‘helping people flourish’ is aligned with the foundation’s ethos of ‘growing the good’ through education.
