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?
