Oxfam trailwalker to mark fifth and final year in Whakatane
Next year's Oxfam Trailwalker will be the last in Whakatane.
The organisation is returning to Whakatane next March for what will be the fifth Trailwalker in the district.
After that the fund-raiser will move to another location, yet to be announced.
Oxfam says Whakatane will always be a home to the event and they're confident it's not a permanent goodbye.
They say strong links have been established with the local council, community groups, iwi and volunteers and they hope to come back to the district in the future.
