“I thought it would be the coolest thing to get to know New Zealand from a volunteer side. But I never thought I’d be eligible – I’m female, just arrived from another country.”

This National Volunteer Week, we’re thanking our 11,500 plus volunteers for missing precious moments in their lives to protect our communities.
