I am looking this on behalf of a lady I met at Takapuna who is in a very difficult situation financially. WINZ is giving her very little weekly support. She needs some more finances to pay for her expenses and her borther's last rites who died unexpectedly.
She is a Chef by trade and has also done care giving work and is also open for cleaning work.
Since past 6 weeks or more, she stands every week on sunday in takapuna, does some singing and relies on kind people who donate her some money, food etc.
If anyone knows of any such work opportunities, please PM me. Ideally in takapuna or close by areas, as she lives there and relies on bus as transport.
Many thanks 🙏
I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
Police asked and you responded.
Members of the public have helped to christen Auckland Police's new puppy Etu.
Police appealed to the public last week for suggestions for a name starting with E for their latest canine recruit.
People were quick to come up with names.
Echo, Ernie, Eddie and Ezra were top contenders but officers were taken with the name Etu.
As Halloween edges closer, some Auckland streets are going all out to decorate their homes and stock up on sugary treats.
Others will be banning trick-or-treaters this Saturday night in post-pandemic New Zealand.
