One man's special volunteer job at Auckland Airport

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.

Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.

Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.

In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.

Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?

Professional House / Pet Sitter

Julie from Grey Lynn

Hi - I am a professional house and pet sitter who is reliable, tidy and great with animals.

You can count on me to keep your house safe and clean, and your animals happy while you are away.

I prefer longer housesits but I have some space for short-term sits in September.

Excellent references from previous house sits available in written or verbal form.

Look forward to hearing from you :-)
