A plea for willing tradies has been issued after a community hall suffered heavy storm damage.
The Cook Island/Te Akapuanga Hall in Porirua was hit hard by stormy weather on December 8.
In a post to the Porirua community Facebook group, the Cook Islands Association asked any tradespeople who could spare time on Saturday, December 28, to head along from 7am til noon.
There was damage to the kitchen and the roof, and any help patching holes would be appreciated.
They would need to bring tools, any useful materials, hi-vis vests, and a hard hat if needed.
"Te Akapaunga is the pride and joy of our community," it said.
"As we are unable to pay for your time, this is a humble request of support and contribution toward the rebuild of our beautiful home."
The hall was closed following the storm, and is expected to remain so until further notice.
