Gathering's debts

The financially troubled Gathering is days away from receivership unless it gets urgent help, organiser Murray Kingi says. The Golden Bay dance party was facing "the big crunch", with debts totalling more than $400,000. Mr Kingi said he had signed a personal guarantee with the event's bank and would be bankrupted if the Gathering "dropped out". People owed money from the last two Gatherings could still be paid if the event was paid the money it was owed, he said.
