The Koha Shed is a nationwide registered charity & I have run the Hawkes Bay Shed for over three years from my home. It started off with donations of household goods & clothing donated by the public, then shared to families in need. In the last year I realised that Hawkes Bay needed food more, so I now collect & distribute food to families in need & the wider community. I have done all of this out of my own pocket (a very shallow pocket) Koha's policy is "No Money Changes Hands, just a smile is all you need for payment". I run six Fridges & Freezers from my home that has boosted my power bill immensely & I also fund the running costs of my car, that is most days loaded to the hilt with donated food from different sources. To be able to have a slush fund to help collect, store & distribute the food would be a huge help.
Hi neighbours - prisoners have expressed that they want to be able to vote in both the general election and local body elections.
They say it would help them feel human and connected to the community, with former prisoner Awatea Mita saying the voting ban is "humiliating and dehumanising".
What do you think? Should prisoners be allowed to vote in the council elections? Read more here
Our daughter is raising funds for her Cheerleading competition in Australia later this year. If you have any old car/tractor etc batteries or hot water cylinders (or in fact any scrap metal) to dispose of please let us know and we can come collect them and dispose of them for you.
