HATCh Trust


The “Help a Taranaki Child Trust” (Hatch trust) was established in Dec 2004 by a small group of Taranaki business people, anxious to help less advantaged children living in Taranaki, who have a tangible dream and desire and talent/skills to progress forward in their chosen field of study/career.

The stated purpose of the trust is to “promote health and education of Taranaki children by enabling access to health facilities, amateur sporting facilities, educational facilities and cultural facilities”. A fund pool has been established from fund raising events and donations, and the interest accrued is now set aside to provide financial assistance in the form of grants.

We are proud to announce a partnership between Americarna, Hatch Trust  and WITT.  We have chosen Hatch to be the beneficiary charity of our choice, whereby the proceeds from fundraising activities held in association with our event will be donated to Hatch Trust. Hatch will, in association with WITT, provide annual scholarships to WITT students who satisfy the criteria as laid out in the student application form.

Please show your support towards the Hatch Trust when you see them out and about during our event.  The fundraising proceeds go towards a very worthy cause.
