Gun buyback and amnesty collections will be held in Mosgiel on Friday at the Taieri Rugby Football Club.

It will be followed by two other collection events on Saturday and Sunday at the Kensington Army Hall, 24 Bridgman St, Dunedin.

Both events will run from 10am until 2pm.

Police said they are supporting firearms owners to hand-in either prohibited firearms or firearms under amnesty at a local collection event as part of the Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Parts and Magazines) Amendment Act 2019.

"We want to ensure these changes are as accessible and easy to navigate as possible," Southern district commander Paul Basham says.

"Ultimately we hope to never again see the kind of harm that we know these types of firearms are capable of causing."

More than 250 buyback events will be held around the country before the amnesty period ends on December 20.

Sadly, this is a reality for many Kiwi families living in poverty at the moment, as they struggle through a cold winter without even the basics to survive. They are often forced to choose between providing food, warmth and shelter for their family, knowing the profound impact that going without even one of these things will have on their health and well-being.

Please support this ‘Lights On’ Winter Appeal and help keep families safe, warm and sheltered this winter.

Teen Sharonika Prasad used to be scared, of life, of opportunity.

She lacked self-confidence. ‘‘I had a negative mind set in which I had beliefs that I would never be successful at anything, with a very low self-esteem. ‘‘I made excuses because I had no motivation and little confidence and I let life pass me by even if it was a wonderful opportunity because I was so afraid of the unknown.’’

Not anymore! Prasad, 18, and the youngest in a family of five, is now working as a caregiver while studying a foundation course at NZMA for occupational therapy and has realised she ‘‘could do anything’’. She is the first in her family to go to university. The South Auckland teen has found her potential with the help of our Foundation that aims to transform young Kiwi lives.
