On Thursday the 26th of November the Red Cross are holding our annual Mistletoe Market at Toitoi from 2-8pm, this event will be a great place to start… and finish your Christmas shopping, all while supporting the New Zealand Red Cross. We will have local stallholders on site with their handmade items for sale and a number of other exciting activities such as donut decorating with Mamas Donuts and more.
This year we are also excited to be holding the Red Cross Upcycle Challenge, there are 3 different challenges each with a prize of $250 in the form of a prezzy card. These challenges are to encourage people to reuse, recycle and repurpose items found at our Red Cross Shops and Curtain Bank and let their creativity shine. The challenges are as follows..
* The HB Curtain Bank Challenge – Sponsored by Kathys Drapes by Design - Create a fashion item from a previously loved curtain.
* The Red Cross Retail Challenge – Sponsored by Tammy Jensen, Harcourts - Purchase an item from one of the Red Cross Shops and upcycle it.
* The Art Upcycle Challenge – Sponsored by The Red Cross Shop – Cadbury Road - Give old art new life by adding to the image or the frame.
The Challenges are all open now and close on Friday 20th November, they are open to any age and your can enter as many times as you want. The winner will be announced at the Mistletoe Market on the 26th of November.

Now that summer's finally here and the holidays are just around the corner for many, we'd love to hear about your favourite summer holiday memories. Has there been a trip that you continue to think about years later? Where did you go, with who and what did you get up to? What made it such a stand-out experience? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article. Cheers.
We wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the amazing people who make Neighbourhood Support possible across Aotearoa!
If you know someone who is giving back in your community, show them some love. Don't let their acts of generosity go unnoticed.
Here’s an excellent way to remember the difference between “affect” and “effect”, two commonly confused words!
