We have some fun new opportunities for people who would like to use their skills to help our community.

DIY volunteer at Neighbourhood Trust

Whanau Centre renovation skills

We are excited to announce that the previous site for our Pay It Forward shop is in the process of being transformed into a community hub called The Whanau Centre, that the Neighbourhood Trust will operate out of in the heart of Mairehau.

  • We need a plasterer to fix up some damage on an internal wall; and
  • A sign writer to replace our signage with Whanau Centre branding

If you can help with any of these tasks, please contact Don at community@nht.org.nz

Volunteer Neighbourhood News delivery

Neighbourhood News distribution

The Mairehau newsletter has also gone through a transformation. Our revamped Neighbourhood News will be delivered to 3000 households in Mairehau and St Albans in the week beginning 3 August, and we need some help with the logistics of distribution.

We need:

  • 10 people who love walking, to deliver approximately 300 copies of the Neighbourhood News each
  • Someone to coordinate the delivery process, including creating maps, communicating with delivery people and dividing newsletters into delivery bags

Please email Rebecca at comms@nht.org.nz if you are interested.
