We have 600 rubber Red Cross ducks being released down the Huatoki Stream all the way to Puke Ariki Landing from 11am – 12.30pm.

This is a fun family event where lots of spot prizes will be handed out as well as prizes for the first three ducks to finish, the lucky last duck, whānau duck, wacky hair duck plus many more!

Hire one duck for $5 or three ducks for $10.

There will be a BBQ with $2 sausages and an ice cream machine with $2 ice creams so remember to bring some cash on the day. There will also be children's face painting and a children's human duck race (under 12) for kids to take part in.

Red Cross Journey is all about walking in someone else’s shoes. Choose a journey to follow, clock 10,000 steps each day between 8 May and 8 June and get people to sponsor you.

Along the way, you’ll receive updates marking your milestones and sharing more about your chosen journey.
By taking part and fundraising, you’ll be helping Red Cross do good things across New Zealand and around the world.

Which journey will you take?

Choose to walk Disaster Welfare and Support Team volunteer Kath’s journey and cover 240km during the month – that’s about 10,000 steps a day – or get a team together and follow the Tamim family's route to a safer life, covering 1,000km.

With the wild weather hitting many parts of New Zealand today, it’s important to be prepared for widespread flooding, heavy rain, slips, and wind damage. You can be prepared by ensuring your emergency kits are fully-stocked and you’ve got plenty of water.

* Find out which items to put in your emergency kit
* Keep an eye on MetService weather updates for more information. Remember to check in on your neighbours to make sure they’re OK. Stay safe on the roads, and consider altering your Easter travel plans.

With hundreds of Bay of Plenty residents already hit hard with severe flooding, we’ve launched an appeal to help. Many families will never be able to return to their homes. 100% of donations will go to those in need, please donate now.

Stay safe!
