Help Hospice create admission gift bags

I work at North Haven Hospice. We would love to be able to offer our new patients a gift bag. Mid North Hospice already do this with the clever creations and generous donations of their locals. Their packs include: Hand sewn fabric drawstring tote bag Kawakawa balm (made locally) Lip balm Hand crafted heart to hold for comfort Moisturiser If you feel you could help contribute in some way or know of an organisation that may be interested please get in touch. We are open to ideas. I can send you a photo of the mid north hospice’s package for inspiration.

Kids Christmas Workshop Helpers Wanted!
Group request

Hi all, Connect Hurunui is holding a kids Christmas Gift Making day on Saturday the 11th of November at Connect Cottage in Amberley. We're looking for anyone who loves being around kids to come and help us. Our idea is to have a few craft items for kids to choose from to suit the adult they are gifting to. The kids might require help with the some of the crafts or with making gift wrapping. Its really just about being around and helping them achieve something they're proud of and excited to give. We expect the workshop to run for around 3 to 4 hours including morning tea. The exact crafts are to be confirmed and we will need to judge how much help we need based on the response to the workshops.
