Does anyone have any furniture for a worthy family.....

Ben from St Heliers

Hello fellow group members. I've recently met a young family in Glendowie. Early 20's with a lovely little 4 year old boy. Their rent is very expensive but have moved here to get their son into a good school.

I will buy them some sofa's, bed's anything really. They have a nice place but are literally all sleeping on the floor. I'll give it a week or so to see of anyone in our community can help for free!!! If not let me know what you have and I'll pay for it and collect.

We are all very priviledged, let's not forget to put a bit back!

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
