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 🙏
Commuting across the harbour bridge is taking an hour longer on average due to works that need to be completed. How did this affect you?

Hi Neighbours, Auckland's raft of crises in 2020 has resulted in some clever and quick responses. So why can't our decision-makers always be so nimble? Read the story below:
Join our community planting day at Eskdale Reserve, which has been at the heart of our activities since Kaipātiki Project’s inception. Spend some time outdoors to connect with nature and community, while restoring New Zealand forests.
We thank Barfoot & Thompson Glenfield and Milford branches for supporting this event. Their contribution enables us to continue restoring Eskdale Reserve and planting hundreds of plants and trees.
Things to bring:

- Sun protection
- Garden gloves if you have them (we'll have some as well)
