Great day at the Cricket

Regan Hines from Christchurch City Mission

Yesterday we had the honour of being able to treat some of our men down to a day of cricket courtesy of Canterbury Cricket. Within the group were plenty of guys who were big cricket fans however had never had a chance to attend a game before and they absolutely loved the chance to be a part of the crowd and to support their team….often very loudly!

One of the men staying in our emergency accommodation commented that his days are spent doing the same thing at the same places. Getting out and doing something different not only lifted his mood, he shared that ‘..it made him feel like a normal person in the community’.

Opportunity’s like this allow our whanau to have some fun and engage with their community in a positive way. A huge thank you to our supporters and Canterbury Cricket for your gift of the tickets and making this a reality.

Christchurch recycling temporarily halted during Covid-19 crisis

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

Mixed paper, plastic and glass from Christchurch and Banks Peninsula households will go to landfill, instead of being recycled. If people are struggling to fit all their general rubbish in their red wheelie bin during the lockdown, they can put excess in the yellow wheelie bin - temporarily.
