Join Richard and Tania Taylor in the Weta Workshop boardroom for lunch!

The Neonatal Trust is extremely proud and honoured to have Richard and Tania Taylor as our Patrons. They are fantastic supporters of The Neonatal Trust – very generously giving their time to promote awareness and assist with fundraising activities. We are incredibly grateful for their support.

The winner of this auction will be able to bring five friends along for a truly unique experience. They will enjoy lunch with the co-owners and co-founders of Weta Workshop, in the Weta Workshop boardroom, surrounded by a large number of original sculptures and collectibles.

From humble beginnings in the back room of their flat in Wellington, Richard and Tania have built Weta Workshop to be a world-leading design and effects facility servicing the world’s creative industries. Richard is a five times Academy Award© winner (in Visual effects, costume design and makeup) and in 2012 was recognised as New Zealander of the Year.

This lunch is for up to six people (in one group). Appreciating busy schedules and travel commitments the date and time will need to be by negotiation. The luncheon would ideally be booked for December 2018 to April 2019 inclusive. The winner and five guests are responsible for their own transport to Weta Workshop in Miramar, Wellington.

Every year in New Zealand, more than 5,000 babies are born premature. That’s one every 90 minutes. Many more full-term babies requiring specialist support are cared for in specialist neonatal intensive care units. The Neonatal Trust helps to support the families of premature and also sick full-term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home and onwards.
