Mid-Winter Christmas Dinner

Friday 22nd July 2022

Twas Mid-Winter Christmas and all was not quiet.  There were carols, blazing fires and all was just right.  The food was delicious, the costumes were great.  Dessert was a hit with a piled high plate.  The costumes were festive, lots of cans were donated.  Oh what a night,  Christmas was celebrated!

Relay For Life

Monday 26th April 2021

Last weekend Salmond participated in Relay for Life. Relay for life is a fundraising opportunity for the cancer society to raise awareness for Cancer by running throughout the night. This event happens all around the country and provides the chance to spread awareness of such a phenomenal organisation.

 

For 12 hours over the night of the 24/25th of April, 25 Salmond residents participated in this event and ran around Otago University. As a team we ran 764 laps around the clocktower and kept the spirit high throughout the night with lots of music and singing. We also had a special guest appearance during the event, Sammy the Salmon, who even ran multiple laps throughout the night. Sammy the Salmon’s feature during the event did not go unnoticed and won the competition on the night for best individual costume.

Prior to the main event we had a fundraiser quiz night at the college for residents to participate in. The quiz night raised a total of $267 which was put towards our team total. This event had a large number of residents coming together, dressed in a variety of costumes to support such a fantastic charity. With many spot prizes throughout the night the most memorable was best costume, which went to Lily and Casey for their beautiful commitment and dedication to Shrek.

As a team we raised just over $800 through donations to individual team members from the college. We are so proud of all the residents who participated in this event and donated to support the Cancer Society.

Degan's Shave for a Cure

Saturday 24th April 2021

My name is Degan and I shaved my head for Cancer.

I have always wanted to shave my head for cancer as it’s a cause I strongly believe in. I wanted to raise awareness and money to help with cancer research all I’d have to do make a big difference is lose some hair. So I thought - bring it on!

After growing my hair out for three years into a nice lengthy mop, I decided that if I was going to shave; now would be the time! And with help from all my donators and the awesome support from my family I managed to raise a total of $1750!!

Thank you to everyone who out along the way!
