Wanaka’s Kahu Youth members are once again taking over Wanaka restaurant Amigo’s.

Youth worker Richard Elvey said it was ‘‘a bit last minute’’ and later than usual due to the Covid-19 pandemic but they were delighted to be returning to the annual initiative.

This was the 12th year in the row they had run the fundraiser, where about 20 young people would take over the restaurant, cleaning, taking orders, making drinks and helping where they can.

Since event began well over 200 youth had taken part, and Amigos had donated more than $10,000 for the Kahu Youth Trust.
For four nights – Wednesday and Thursday June 17 and 18 and Wednesday and Thursday June 24 and 25, young people will be taking part.
Amigos donate half of the takings from each night to Kahu Youth.
