Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

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.

Are you OK?

The Team from Wellington District Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.

Kia Kaha Aotearoa.

Ian Munro from Rotary Club of Tawa Inc.

The Rotary Club of Tawa was chartered on 4 April 1970 and would have been celebrating its first 50 years this weekend. These celebrations are now on hold until later in the year.
In the meantime, publication of the 50th anniversary book, “Creating and Enhancing Communities: the first 50 Years of the Rotary Club of Tawa”, will still go ahead.

In her foreword to the book, edited by Pat Waite, Club President Judith Gray writes that, despite the many changes and challenges over the years, the club’s spirit of service has persisted.

“It has a history of vigorously supporting local and global projects, helping young people take up scholarships and programmes that have given them a chance to grow and develop into citizens of the world.”

The book touches on many of these projects and the people involved and will be available for the public to purchase in due course.
