A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.
“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.
About 1:00pm 1st Dec, I parked my car in the coupon parking area in Tinakori Rd, it's about 100M away from the Thorndon Fair, when I came back to my car about 2:30pm, my car was damaged, someone tried to do a parallel parking but hit my car and did a runner. My car is silver colour 2018 Holden Astra, the car which hit my car should be blue.
Anyone, who saw the incident, could you please contact me 029 9203160.
Attached picture is the damage to my car.
Thank you very much for your help.
Does anyone have any moving boxes they want to get rid of? We would happily take them off your hands.
Thank you 😊
When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.
Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”
