Supporting Homeless Women in our Community

Felicia from Pakuranga


I just started with a fitness and well-being project for homeless women in Auckland.
For the past few weeks I start working with Auckland City Mission that covers the CBD area only and now I'm trying to find out if there is an organisation that looks after the the homeless people here locally, in our community.

I own LIONESS - The Gym for Women in Highland Park and we are about to open another studio branch in Pakuranga for our members, and I would like to offer some complimentary fitness and well-being services to the local homeless women and perhaps also to affiliate with other local businesses and we can do something together ♥️

Can you please email me at info@lionessgym.co.nz if you know of any organisation that is looking after the east/south homeless people

Rings Found

Mike from Bucklands Beach

I found these two rings on the road next to Manukau bus interchange. If you can give me the inscription on the one ring they can be returned. If anybody can share this on other community groups would be appreciated.

Guinness world record: Toastmasters complete marathon

Alison Perkins from Pakuranga Toastmasters

Congratulations to all who took part in this magnificent event. With 25 independent witnesses monitoring the speakers in four hour shifts, from Easter Sunday 11 am continuously one after the other until the Friday evening.

171 Toastmasters gave 381 speeches, all over 7 minutes, some over an hour. All with an audience throughout and no more than 30 seconds between speakers.

Subjects presented were many and varied, including personal stories. The confidence that successful Toastmasters gain was on show throughout.

The Toastmasters ethics, integrity, they promised to be there. Respect, they supported each other. Service, they turned up. Excellence, they did it in style.

They achieved the Guinness World Record Speech Marathon 127 hours 31 minutes 43 seconds.

Officially amazing!
