Kia ora neighbours!
As we're back at Alert Level 2 until this Friday, the Cancer Society will be levelling up our contact-tracing and hygiene procedures again to keep everyone safe. You’re still welcome to come and see us, we’ll just be asking you a few questions at the door.
It’s important to remember that people with cancer or at high risk are encouraged to stay at home where possible, and take additional precautions when leaving home. Please continue to attend cancer treatments and discuss any concerns with your treatment team.
Visit our website for more information or you can always give us a call on 0800 CANCER (226 237) for any extra support 💛

Trish Hina could be the greatest sportswoman you have never heard of.
A product of Naenae College, she later settled in Gisborne, where she was a social worker.
Her sporting CV includes representing New Zealand in touch, softball, rugby and rugby league.
Initially, her sporting success came in softball, playing for New Zealand and helping her club and Hutt Valley win numerous titles.
League was however her first love and in 2000 Hina was named MVP at the first women’s World Cup, where New Zealand beat Great Britain 26-4.
She was prominent in the Kiwi Ferns retaining the World Cup in 2005 and 2008.
In the 2008 defence, Hina was named MVP for a second time. In the final, New Zealand thrashed Australia 34-0, with Hina scoring two tries and kicking three conversions.
In 2010, she achieved arguably her greatest achievement by being selected to play for the Black Ferns at the World Cup.
She became the first female to win rugby and league World Cups.
Towards the end of her career, Hina was diagnosed with kidney disease and she was unable to fulfill her dream of playing Sevens at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
In 2015, she was inducted as a Hutt Valley Sports Awards legend.
