Aotea Army Working Bee in Okiwi

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Hey my beautiful island 🏝
And Attention army volunteers…..
Meet Mr and Mrs Kiri & Annette Parker.
Absolutely lovely couple.
She’s beautiful as and the first minute she saw me she had a massive smile and said WOW “where did you come from” i simply said the universe sent me. ❤️ and she’s batteling Alzheimer’s badly and needs full time care which Keri does himself but needs respite care when he’s away plus to make it harder he is also fighting cancer of the kidneys and is off for surgery on the 28th of this month.
A bit of background on these two lovely people…she’s was a police officer for many yrs and he was an engineer they moved to the island 20 plus yrs ago for a better life.
They couldn’t have children of their own so they adopted children from welfare and gave them a beautiful life.
Now this family definitely tick the box for some community loving.
There’s a hell of a lot to be done in a 6 hr day, but I’d say with 20 plus people we could smash out 2 yrs of work.
I have a list of what needs doing.
I just met them this morning and spent a few hours talking to them.
Absolutely beautiful souls ❤️
I’m going to need as many hands on deck on the sunday 23rd June ( this month) 2 weeks away at 10am in the beautiful township of Okiwi.
Park at the church it’s the house behind it in the same driveway
Lunch and knibbles is definitely all provided and a few beverages after.
They are very humble people and I’ve talked them into letting our island army come show them some love.
Let’s show the north some southern charm.
It’s only a 39 minute drive from tryphena.
If you need a lift let me know asap so I can rally up transport for you in some way.
The job is a mission which isn’t hard in numbers.
I’ll need all people with all experiences.
kindness is the best gift you can give.
Radiate pure good energy ✨️
