Our July news

Posted Thursday July 6, 2023

Last month, we were honoured to be named one of only ten organisations nationwide to receive a special grant towards leadership and empowerment of young people, especially young women, during the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™. There is more information about this in our newsletter and amazing opportunities to get involved.

It is also the last goodbyes for some of our ākonga and Gardens trainees. They're back to re-engaging with the big wide world with all our support, and we couldn't be more proud. 

We have a honey fundraiser on the go as well, thanks to our partnership with the Dunedin Beekeepers Club who have hives on our premises. This is a great opportunity to get some really great quality honey for a low price. A big thank you to the Beekeepers Club for their awesome support for both the honey, and teaching our young people!

A major thank you to Sport Otago and their Tū Manawa fund for our new sporting equipment. We have been able to purchase a badminton set, volleyball set, table tennis set, basketball hoop, dodgeball set and MORE with their generous support. Check out the article for some great action shots of our team in action!

Lastly, our Hive after school programme and bicycle recycling is looking for some extra rakatahi who are wanting to get involved and do something a bit different. Please read through our articles and please get in touch if you'd like more information. 

It's going to be a busy few months going forward too, so share this newsletter for more people to get involved in our community!
