Welcome to this month’s e-newsletter for April and yes it is starting to get cooler as we head into winter, so please just a quick reminder to ensure you get your annual flu vaccinations and keep warm and well in your homes. 

Time to roll out those wonderful hot soup recipes. My favourite being pumpkin soup.

Our congratulations to Manjit Kaur our Employee of the month for her wonderful service to our customers, she is one of those humble, quietly-spoken but hard-working employees and simply a great example of great servanthood leadership with our customers.

You will also read Doreen Mateora’s story and a belated 21st Birthday congratulations to you Doreen, we love you heaps and we are truly thankful to you for sharing your story and parts of your journey which will encourage all of us about living life in all its possibilities, meitaki maata.

This month we had up to 25 participate in the Boot Camp challenge. Our thanks to the “Lions Den” trainers for their commitment to providing this service to all those families and staff who participated.

At the same time we also had another 63 people participating in the Biggest Losers health and wellness challenge. Our congratulations to Losa Tafau (1st), Ana Muller (2nd) and Lota Fehoko (3rd) well done for achieving and being great examples.

Last, but not least thank you for the 64 staff, family members and friends who made it to the start line for the 10km and 5km challenge at the O’Rock obstacle course event last Sunday the 28th April. Well done everyone, O for O’rock and O for ‘Osome’ because you are definitely awesome.

We are getting bigger each year with more participants each year. Let’s see if we can get to 100 starters next year. Also many thanks to our helpers on the day you make it so much more of a success with food, photos and cheering us along all the way.

All these events and programmes are part of our health and wellness programmes in our community.
