Kia Ora 2018!

6 January 2018

A+W NZ saw the end of 2017 out in (informal) style with a small gathering to thank all of our volunteers who have contributed throughout the year. Our Xmas celebration and reflection on the year was held at Objectspace in Ponsonby, who very kindly donated to us the use of their space.

A big thank you goes out to Chow: Hill Architects, who covered the cost of catering the event - once they heard it was to be a 'byo plate' affarir due to low funds after our extremely busy year!

As per our last newsletter of 2017, we indulged ourselves by re-capping on all we have achieved in the year, as we believe it is important to acknowledge the efforts, talents and generosity of all who contribute to 'getting work done.'
