We were also fortunate to receive an extra $500 from Good in the Hood as part of their Wear Your Badge campaign, taking our total to $8,929!

A huge thanks to everyone who voted for us and to Z Energy for having us at nine of their stations. We look forward to an even more successful campaign in 2017!

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK 2016

Volunteers

 

A HUGE THANKS TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS

This week is National Volunteer Week and we’re taking the chance to say thank you to all the fantastic volunteers who selflessly give up their time to help our work.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch is dependent on the generosity of others to help us deliver our work of supporting the 100,000 Aucklanders living with diabetes. Without their time and effort, this simply wouldn’t be possible.

Whether it’s helping out at an event, such as Round the Bays or the Auckland Marathon, or giving up their time at our office in Onehunga, we are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you. 

Don’t forget, that as part of National Volunteer Week, Auckland Zoo are offering two for one tickets up to and including Sunday, June 26th.

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please e-mail us at office@diabetesauckland.org.nz with your name and contact details and we’ll provide you with a letter as evidence of your volunteer work, so that you can enjoy a great day out at the Zoo!
