Red Cross is holding its annual street collection on Thursday 19, Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March.  The goal is to reach 4,000 hours of volunteer bucket-shaking time.  Please can you help?  If you could give a couple of hours (or more!) to collect, it would be appreciated.  The funds raised go to support programmes like disaster preparedness and response, Meals on Wheels, community transport, migration programmes and their Restoring Family Links tracing service (as provided after Whakaari/White Island).  Collections are being held across Auckland for the three days, so there‚Äôs going to be a site convenient for you if you can help.  Please call 0800 RED CROSS (722 776) and ask for Auckland Fundraising.
