Are you up for Drop Your Boss 2019?

The Team from Graeme Dingle Foundation

Our Tamariki face many obstacles in this ever-changing world … so we are asking ‘bosses’ across New Zealand to accept their own challenge, step outside their comfort zone and take part in Drop Your Boss 2019!

Drop Your Boss is an annual fundraiser for the Graeme Dingle Foundation where we ask our Corporate Partners and Business Leaders to nominate their Boss to step off Auckland’s iconic building – The Sky Tower. All we ask is that your team fundraise through our Givealittle page and raise as much as possible to see your Boss dropped! All funds raised will support the work the Graeme Dingle Foundation does with young people across Aotearoa.

We invite staff, family and friends to come along and witness their Boss literally ‘go over the edge’ – all in the community spirit of the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

Sign up for Drop Your Boss and Walk The Talk with us!

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.
