The work of New Zealand Red Cross is diverse and far reaching and would not be possible without the efforts of our amazing members, staff, and supporters who volunteer.
From the 15th - 21st March we will be holding our Annual Street Appeal. Street collecting is a wonderful and fun way for your to be a part of something bigger, meet and greet people in your community and encourage them to donate to a great cause.
Can you give an hour or two of your time to help vulnerable people in your community?
To get involved please sign up at www.redcross.org.nz.... By donating your time, you're making a real difference in people's lives. We don’t know where we’ll be needed next, but we do know because of you, we’ll be there!

We will keep you posted with pictures and updates, watch this space!!
On Friday at a job for a family in Fairfield, I had a lot of sanding to do on this window sill. It had been heavily exposed to the sun, giving that crocodile peeling skin effect. A good thorough sand with the orbital sander (using p80 grit followed by p150 grit) provided a secure foundation for the subsequent paint coats.
