The Howick Children’s Charitable Trust was established in 2000 by Reay & Brian Neben & Emma Smith. This was taken over in 2018 by Bo & Pip Burns & John Russell. All of these people are local Howickians and passionate about growing, educating and helping the community especially our younger generation to embrace the local culture we have.
We believe there is a need for more free community events to promote young families to get out and about, creating engagement with busy parents and grandparents with our youth. We know and want to nuture the biggest thing our youth want, which is time, so ultimately creating memorable events where quality time is spent engaging together as a family.
Our main drive is to offer as many entertaining, unique and free family days out and experiences in the local East Auckland areas.
To be able to continue to put on these events and activities, we rely heavily on local board grants, donations and fundraising.
