Last Meeting: Maurice Roberts - Wellington City Mission
A good test of any society is how well or otherwise it looks after its most vulnerable members. I had often wondered how the more vulnerable citizens survived in the depths of the lockdown.  Maurice, who works on fundraising and publicity for the Wellington (and Lower Hutt) City Mission told us how difficult it was for them during the depths of the Lockdown. There were none of the normal food donations coming in and all the normal public facilities like showers and toilets were locked.
The City Mission rose to the challenge, using its resources to acquire and deliver food parcels and providing more accommodation in its transitional houses, including Britannia House in Petone.
Maurice also gave an outline of the impressive ongoing and expanding work of the Mission, including its Family Stores, its commercial paella kitchen, and its expanded base in Newtown.
Thank you Maurice, for your talk, and our thanks to the Mission for the amazing work it does.

* Christmas Puddings: Contact Anne Abbott for your order(s):
* Entertainment Book:  Here some changes to the Entertainment book this year:
  • Vouchers have been put on the phone instead of in book form, because no-one goes anywhere without their phone these days.
  • One membership can go on 4 phones so any member of the family can get a discount for different things. 
  • The book lasts for a year, whenever you buy it, and the year starts when you use your first voucher.
Contact Anne Abbott if you want to get an Entertainment book, or to see what you are buying for your money.
* Funds Raised: Sergeant's Fund - $67.70
