We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.
Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.
She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.
Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

🌼Balancing work and life is difficult, but it can be done. That's why many people choose to work from home if possible. But many think that because you don't leave home, you don't have a real career. This is especially the case for mums.
🌼Hi, I’m Anthea, I have a background in healthcare, a mum of 2 and have been enjoying working part time from home for the past 2 years. It’s been absolutely life changing!
🌼When we went into lockdown, I was interesting to see how my online business would hold up during these unprecedented times and it has been pleasantly rewarding for many of us.
🌼You see, I started working this business because I wanted an extra income and more time at home. I’m thankful now because my hubby is out of work due to this situation however my business is still ticking over. It’s so relieving.
🌼And in times like these, when everyone is home, I make sure to implement my (Work At Home Mum) schedule into four sections:
- Family time
- Business time
- Household time
- Me time
🌼The pro’s, since the kids are home is that we implemented a learning curriculum on household chores before their devices come out. They will be A+ students before this lock down is over.
Good Neighbour Awards!
Know of a standout neighbour who is making a difference on your street or in your community?
Our big announcement of the day is that we are launching the Good Neighbour Awards! We decided that it would be a positive way to promote the message of neighbours helping each other and also recognise the acts of support and kindness we have seen over the past week or so.
Nominations are open to all residents of New Zealand who currently reside in the country during the lockdown. Each week we'll choose our favourite nomination as our Good Neighbour of the week. Both the nominator and nominee will each receive a $50 Prezzy Card and plenty of virtual high-fives, our small way of saying thanks for making our neighbourhoods a better place to live.
Nominations opened on Tuesday 7 April 2020 and will be running every week until lockdown ends. People are invited to submit a nomination by 7 pm on Sunday to be considered for that week's award. Winners will be announced on our website and on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram on Tuesdays starting on 14 April.
It is easy to nominate someone. Just go to our website at www.neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz... fill in the nomination form and hit ‘Submit’.
