Teachers turning to foodbanks and hardship grants

Josephine from Abel Tasman National Park

Kia ora neighbours. Teachers say they have been seeking help from foodbanks and hardship grants after the May 29 mega-strike cost them a day's pay. What do think of this? Are you a struggling teacher, or do you know a teacher doing it tough?

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?
