Te Wiki Tūao ā-Motu | National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week 19-25 June 2022 honours the collective energies and mana of volunteers in Aotearoa. This year’s theme is ‘Time to Shine- He wā whakawhiti.’  It’s a time to recognise and celebrate volunteers, a time to shine – whakawhiti. It’s Matariki, a new year and a fresh start; a time to dream – moemoeā and make plans for the future.
