We thought we'd share these pics that capture the spirit of these kids perfectly at the recent Taranaki Whanau Day 2023 ParaFed Taranaki held in New Plymouth recently. 😍

The Halberg Foundation has kindly allowed us to post these images... they tell such a story - kids with disabilities letting nothing hold them back!

Our team was on hand and provided lunch for those attending.

Thank you so much for your support πŸ’•

A day of ’50s and ’60s rock and roll vibe with a lot of classic vehicles and enthusiasts from around the country! πŸŽ‰πŸš—

This best describes The Caroline Bay Rock & Hop, a three-day fundraising event held last weekend by volunteers on behalf of Hospice South Canterbury showcasing cars, caravans, and motorbikes from modern to vintage, classic to muscle, drawing enthusiasm from young and old alike.

Launched in 2017, the event has become well-supported for both the Hospice and the South Canterbury area.

Rapid Relief Team NZ provided valuable fundraising for The Hospice with delicious food and great quality coffee! πŸ”β˜•

GreatTeam supporting a great Cause!

Wow, impressive.At what point did it change from helping out at emergency situations/disasters, to being present at a big show and shine gala day with cars on display, bands, food, competitions, Best Dressed Awards and a funky fashion parade?Seeing as this was a fundraising event, were all monies taken from the sale of refreshments donated to the hospice, or even better, did the RRT show full compassion by giving away all the food you provided? As you state in this post #givebacktothecommunityWhat happened to John Hales’ teaching of being a part of the world but not of it?! Goal posts moved again to fuel the ever changing money hungry agenda?!

What utter bull shit this is all fake to get tax relief for being charitable If someone from the organisation had attended that rally the would get kicked it lost family etc just sheer hypocrisy

People have been excommunicated for less from the cult you charade for ….. the hypocrisy.
