Elusion is proud to sponsor the Special Children's Christmas Party

Patrick Koot from Elusion Electrical Ltd

The one thing every one here at Elusion loves is children. This is the third year we have sponsored the Special Childrens Christmas Party here in Christchurch. Not only do we as a family business sponsor this, our daughter Laura who is a St John's Youth Cadet volunteers every year as a helper. We are especially proud that laura who speaks NZ sign is able to introduce herself in NZ Sign and communicate with not only the deaf children but many special needs children who communicate largely thru sign. It is one of those moments we as a business and family as a whole get to give back to the community.

Laura has also just started babysitting a child who's primary communication is sign language. She is so responsible at 17, she makes us super proud as parents. If you know anyone with children who sign and need a babysitter with great first aid please feel free to contact us thru our business page in the mean time the more work you put thru our business the more we can invest into the Special Childrens Christmas party next year

Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

Calling all Halloween enthusiasts - we'd love to hear from you

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi Cantabrians,

Are you, your children or grandchildren getting involved in Halloween this year? Stuff and The Press newspaper would love to hear from you.

We are hoping to find out how things may be a little bit different for Halloween this year due to Covid-19, and to see how people are still pushing through with their celebrations.

Will you be wearing a face mask with your costume? Or offering hand sanitiser to trick or treaters? Whatever it is you're up to, we'd love to hear about it.

Please comment below or email jake.kenny@stuff.co.nz if you are celebrating Halloween this year and would like to share how.

Thanks in advance folks!
