Koru Care kids to say gidday to LA
Ten Southland youngsters are saying gidday to LA this week as they embark on a Koru Care Southland trip of a lifetime.
The children, all with long-term or terminal illnesses or disabilities, will stay in Los Angeles for almost two weeks, experiencing the attractions of the city.
Their holiday is paid for by fundraising efforts by Koru Care Southland.
Koru Care Southland tour co-ordinator Kevin Reynolds said the group left Invercargill on Saturday and were treated to a party in the Auckland Koru Club Lounge before boarding the flight to Los Angeles.
The group, aged 12-13 years, will spend four days exploring Disneyland as well as visiting Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios, the Los Angeles Zoo and the Hollywood Sign.
They will also travel to San Diego to spend a day at Sea World, watch two dinner shows and do a lot of shopping during their stay, Mr Reynolds said.
The group is expected home at the end of next week.
