So, we’re delighted to partner with Neighbourly for our annual Community Grants initiative, which is in its fourth year running. Grants provide the necessary support for neighbourhood groups to keep doing the awesome work they do and it’s something the team at AMI is very proud of.

In February, we called for applications for our first round of grants from you, the Neighbourly community, for the groups you see doing amazing work. We received the most applications ever, with so many amazing and worthy groups featured. It was very difficult to select the finalists, but thanks to your votes, we’re pleased to say we’ve found the 2019 first round of winners:

Amitabha Hospice Service offers free practical home help and compassionate companionship for the elderly and the incurably ill of any age and their families with specially trained and supervised Caregivers throughout the greater Auckland area. Based on the Buddhist principals of love, integrity, equanimity and service, each family member and staff member is accorded equal respect and compassion with regard to their individuality and uniqueness as members of the larger universal human family. Amitabha Hospice Service is dedicated to developing and maintaining the highest quality of compassionate care in co-operation with other professional community services. The grant funds will support the ongoing work to help those in need. Hear more from their Neighbourly application, or visit their website.

AMI Road Safety Awards winner...

AMI New Lynn

It’s Road Safety Week, and this year the team at Road Safety Education, a nationwide organisation, held the first ever Road Safety Awards!

We are honoured to have been invited to present an award on behalf of the whole AMI team. The recipient of the AMI Community Road Safety Award is RoadSafe Northland, and we were delighted to present the award to Gillian Archer.

RoadSafe Northland is a Northland collective of Road Safety Partners and agencies, under the umbrella of the Northland Road Safety Trust. This charitable trust funds, delivers and supports road safety initiatives in the region on behalf of the Whangārei and Kaipara Districts and the Northland Transportation Alliance, comprising all four Northland councils.

While Northland, like the rest of the country, has a challenging road toll, the incidence of young drivers in fatal and serious crashes has significantly reduced in the last couple of years. Programmes, such as RYDA where nearly 5000 Northland students have participated since inception in 2009, has provided a significant contribution to this reduction.

Gillian of RoadSafe Northland had this to say about the award: “I want to thank Road Safety Education and AMI for the AMI Community Award, for recognising the significant partnership that has allowed this programme to develop and grow in our area. It is timely to acknowledge the many local community partners who have supported this programme over the years. As well as the significant support from local AMI staff and the RYDA team, we have a range of contributors including loan cars provided by Dargaville Ford and Pacific Ford, catering by Rapid Relief Team, support staff from People Potential and Rotary and additional funding from COGS and The Warehouse Dargaville, and of course both Whangārei and Kaipara Councils.

“This award is for all of these partners who have made such a significant Young Driver programme possible.”

Meet Laura! She’s a keen Walking School Bus member from Meadowbank School, which AMI is proud to support. We asked Laura about why she loves the Walking School Bus and why she has all those funky tags.

What is your name? "Laura Manning."

What school do you go to? "I go to Meadowbank School."

What is the name of your Walking School Bus crew? "The Walkie Talkies."

How many Walking School Bus tickets do you have? "Each Walking School Bus member gets a ticket that gets clipped each morning. Once you finish a ticket you receive a badge. I am on the highest badge which is the 600-trip walker but I have done more than 1000 walks. I have also got my winter walker badge, my road safety badge and the walking school bus week badge, and because I am a student leader I click everybody tickets each day."
 
Can you tell us a story of a memorable moment you’ve have on the Walking School Bus? "Recently we had a surf life guard and a fire fighter come to walk with us for super hero dress up day. I also liked the AMI people coming and giving us prizes!"

What is the best part about being part of the Walking School Bus? "On the walking school bus we always get people come and walk with us and there are lots of fun things that you can get involved with and you also get to walk with your friends."
...
Walking School Buses are great ways to get the kids active and to learn about road safety each day. Each group is accompanied by volunteer caregivers to ensure it’s a safe and fun trip. AMI supports Walking School Buses across Auckland and Tauranga by providing hi-vis vests to volunteers And we recently surprised Meadowbank school in Auckland with some bags and sunscreen for the students so they are prepared for the trip.

Maybe your school is keen to set up its own Walking School Bus? Get in touch with Auckland Transport or your local council to get involved. Save Lives, #SpeakUp this Road Safety Week.

February is Bike Month in Auckland - an initiative that is all about adding fun and convenience to the daily lives of Kiwis by encouraging more people to ‘Get on your Bike!’

To celebrate, AMI is giving away bespoke, premium quality and, most importantly, safety-approved bike helmets to adults around Auckland City - encouraging more Kiwis to get on their bikes instead of in their cars, and to ensure they’re safe while doing it.

If you’re thinking of heading to MOTAT this Sunday (18th Feb), make sure to check out the Changing Gears exhibition to nab yourself one of these cool, retro helmets! Our friendly team will be outside the exhibition entrance from 11am-1pm (or until they run out of helmets!)

First in first served – so get in quick!
