Welcome to WEST

Hey Community!
As you likely know, voting has now closed on the Million Dollar Mission. We would like to say thank you for you, your friends, your whanau, and all your emails’ support for WEST: West Auckland Enterprise Skills & Training in the Million Dollar Mission. Even if you hadn’t voted for us, you’ve likely came to our courses or dealt with us in the past, so we’d also like to say thank you and that we appreciate your business and support. Remember, WEST is best!
The Trusts Million Dollar Mission ended to my knowledge around 12:30am Saturday morning, at this time I was staying on a Marae in Northland, New Zealand training to be a facilitator. West Auckland Enterprise, Skills & Training would like to say congratulations to all organisations that participated.
We thought you’d like to see how we did…
A brilliant outcome. WEST has raised $5,890 out of our $15,790 goal.
Does WEST still get their share even though they didn’t reach their goal?
Yes! Even though we were short on our goal, we will still be able to afford some of the equipment we were aiming for. This is still a victory and a celebration to us.
What will WEST be spending their Million Dollar Mission funding on?
We’ll be using the funding’s raised to purchase new crock pots for our slow cooking, new industrial sewing machines for all our sewing classes, an overlocker and some brand new furniture and more! Thanks again for your support! 🙂
