Pulse Energy recently donated 104,000 kWh of electricity to the Catwalk Trust. This was an auction item at the Paris in the Bay event held in Napier.
The auction item contributed $16,000 towards the overall $130,000 raised.
The Catwalk Trust was founded in 2005 by Catriona Williams, formerly one of New Zealand’s leading international equestrian riders, who is now confined to a wheelchair following a riding accident in 2002.
In New Zealand alone, one new Spinal Cord Injury occurs every 5 days resulting in long lasting impairment. Whilst there are a number of organisations providing valuable rehabilitative support to those with SCI; The CatWalk Trust aims to challenge the current boundaries of research, enabling SCI victims to walk again.
