Eaten too many bunny-shaped chocolates this weekend? Fed up of Netflix asking if your ‘still watching’? Or just looking for a creative way to keep active in your bubble? Well, we have an idea for you! Join the Red Cross virtual tour of Lake Taupo!

You can run, walk, yoga and even garden your way across the length of Lake Taupo (71km) from the comfort of your own bubble.

To join, you just need to make a minimum donation of $25. This donation helps fund the amazing work New Zealand Red Cross does. We are on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, with 190 of our volunteers working in their communities to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Our Meals on Wheels and migration services have been deemed essential services and are continuing to operate throughout alert level four. And our Restoring Family Links service is supporting families who have lost contact with each other because of the pandemic. Our work supporting people in times of crisis or disasters is more relevant now than ever.

So, whether your rack up steps from running up and down your stairs, or simply walking to-and-from the fridge, have a little fun and join our virtual tour! - www.myvirtualmission.com...

ShieldsUp is a volunteer driven initiative of over 500 Kiwis, 3D printing, manufacturing and distributing face shields to our medical and emergency heroes across the country facing Covid-19 head on.

Within two weeks, we have delivered over 5,000 face shields, but we are still hearing the calls of many. As the government and DHB’s publicly assure us that all necessary equipment is readily accessible, the demand for our face shields continues to grow daily, with requests for 30,000 shields.

If you would like to help us help them, sign up to volunteer at shieldsup.org.nz, or make a donation to ensure we can continue to produce and distribute our shields to protect our frontline heroes.

ShieldsUp, offering protection to Kiwi’s against COVID-19.

We know some of you are facing threatening and potentially harmful times at home right now. Police will be there for you if you call us.

If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.
