Volunteering is all about kindness and community. While NZ is in lock-down, traditional volunteering isn't necessarily possible, but one great way of helping others in our communities is to reach out to our neighbors (from a safe distance of course).

Volunteering is defined by Volunteer Marlborough and the rest of our network of volunteer centres as "Time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain." When you consider that definition, a lot of people immediately think of 'formal' volunteering like helping in an op shop or a rest home. However, there are many other types of volunteering; helping at church or on the marae, coaching and managing kids sports teams, or mowing your elderly neighbor's lawn are all examples of volunteering!
Volunteering is really just about helping others, and we strongly believe ALL volunteering should be celebrated!

Hello neighbours- this time last year we had a wonderful (albiet cold) day taking part in the annual street collection for HeartKids NZ. Maybe you were one of those lovely people who donated when we were out and about! Sadly due to COVID 19 we are unable to do a street collection this year- still families and babies like mine benefit so much from your help! If you would like to donate to our online fundraiser please follow the link below... Best Regards, Roxanna & baby Embrance heartcanterbury.raiseit.co.nz...
Any recommendations please?
