Poll: Is homelessness an issue in your area?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

K Rd Chronicles, an eight part video series. focuses on homelessness in New Zealand's biggest city.

There’s plenty of desperation in the stories shared but there’s also, above all, a sense of tolerance and humanity. The series is hosted by a transgender journalist called Six, who was homeless for six years. We take to the streets of inner city Auckland and meet the people from Six’s world.

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?
