Stick to your bubble, not your couch - join Red Cross Virtual Tour

Red Cross Communications from Red Cross - Wairarapa Service Centre

During COVID-19 lockdowns overseas, we've seen someone run a half marathon on a tiny balcony and the distance of Everest up and down a staircase. What will we see next in New Zealand!?

We are an active country and we like to get outdoors in our beautiful landscapes. But we know that right now… View more

We are an active country and we like to get outdoors in our beautiful landscapes. But we know that right now we must #stayhomesavelives. Here is a way that you can still keep active in your own home, and still enjoy the beautiful scenery that we have here in Aotearoa! ? #RedCrossVirtualTour

What a lovely way to give back to the community :)

If they’re short of drivers Moana only has to ring me. We never say no – I don’t know the word.”

Soni and Winnie Rogan have been delivering Meals on Wheels in Auckland for nearly 15 years. The couple met in Wanganui more than 50 years ago, and after careers in construction and health care, decided to make use of their spare time by volunteering. They’ve been doing deliveries together ever since. Soni’s become a bit a legend of his run and has signature door knock so his recipients know exactly who’s there to meet them. Winnie says, “everybody knows him,” but the humble pair just see what they do as providing service, and really enjoy seeing the people and get some good laughs.
Legends like Soni and Winnie not only deliver a hot meal to thousands of Kiwis every day, but also provide a social connection for many people who might not otherwise see a smiling face at the door. Meals on Wheels is great way to give back your community. Find out how here: www.redcross.org.nz...
