The Creative Trail Feb 2019 Givealittle page has officially closed and hiker James Talbot and his team have raised nearly $28,000.


Talbot set out to raise $300,000 when he walked 3200 kilometres along the Te Araroa Trail from New Zealand’s southernmost bluff to its northernmost tip.

Despite not being able to raise $300,000, Talbot has acknowledged all those who have supported a worthy fundraiser saying: “We have raised $27,899 dollars YEAH!!! Meitaki Korereka to you all that have given so generously.”

He said the last pay-out from Givealittle would be in the middle of this month.

Once they have had all funds transferred to Rarotonga and reconciled, a cheque will be presented to the Creative Centre in Rarotonga.
