The team at Volunteering Waikato would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Bev Kay, and would like to again recognise Bev for her extensive contribution to the community.
Last week she was awarded the Runner-Up at the 2020 Volunteer Excellence Awards - Long Service category.
Bev has been someone that the New Zealand Red Cross counted on for 30 years. She co-ordinated Meals on Wheels in Te Awamutu, and helped to do more than just deliver food to people. Bev’s efforts kept vulnerable members of the community connected.

Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email email@example.com or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.
Sadly, no one offshore wants to buy Kiwis’ used plastics. This means that while we will be collecting plastics 1-7, we’ll now only be recycling plastics 1, 2 and 5.
We’re asking you all to join the movement and try and avoid purchasing products with plastics 3, 4, 6 and 7. More information on this can be found in the link below ⤵️
