Friends of Te Whai

As a charity, Te Whai Community Trust depend on donations to run our community house and wellbeing services that support our community and the place we love - Mangawhai.

Ko wai mātou? Who are we?

Friends of Te Whai is a collective of businesses and individuals that understand at the heart of a healthy community is social responsibility. Friends of Te Whai provide resources to uplift the wellbeing of the Mangawhai community through donations to Te Whai Community Trust.

We firmly believe that communities need to look after their own and that a community is only as strong as its most vulnerable members. We can make a collective impact to improve many areas including mental wellbeing, senior isolation, food scarcity and disengaged youth areas, and we can do this together.
