This National Volunteer Week, we’re recognising all the amazing volunteers who form the backbone of emergency response in Aotearoa and support their communites every day.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
When Aotearoa faces challenging times, Kiwis always step up to support people in need. Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring that we get through, together.

“Every day, a network of 11,000 Red Cross volunteers and members across the country help us respond to disasters, settle new Kiwis, help run our shops, deliver Meals on Wheels, teach former refugees how to drive, sew curtains for families in need, and so much more. Last financial year, Red Cross volunteers gave close to 120,000 hours of their time. They are the hands and feet of almost everything we accomplish,” says Niamh Lawless, our Secretary General.

Bus users and pedestrians are likely to be the big winners under a planned revamp of Wellington’s Golden Mile, while cyclists and scooter riders could also benefit.

The Let’s Get Wellington Moving team revealed a range of proposals for the central city thoroughfare on Wednesday, and as expected, removing private vehicles from the area was high on the agenda.

Two of the three options proposed removing general traffic entirely from the section of road encompassing Courtenay Place, Lambton Quay, Manners St, and part of Willis St, while a third suggested removing traffic from some sections of the road.

To see the details on each option, click here.

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?
