Description

Family Volunteering │ Sunday 5 May │ 2-4pm │ Charlesworth Reserve


Is giving back a priority for you and your family? Are you looking to start a meaningful family tradition? Why not join us on our first ever Family Volunteering Day! Get the whole family involved – children, teenagers, even grandparents!

Come along to Charlesworth Reserve (Charlesworth Street, Woolston – meet in the carpark) on Sunday 5 May 2019, from 2pm to 4pm. We’ll be planting rushes, mulching and releasing around plants. The shoreline environment is perfect for younger children, as the sandy, unpolluted setting is easy and safe to work in.

Plants, equipment and gardening gloves are provided, but please bring your own:

  • child-sized gloves and spades

  • Gumboots or sturdy old shoes - you will get dirty!

  • Your water bottle and a snack

  • Wear clothing appropriate for any weather.

Witness the real difference that volunteering can make, while helping younger family members develop genuine empathy for others, and giving kids a deeper appreciation for what they have. Spend quality family time together doing something fun and worthwhile. We know that the biggest barrier to volunteering is lack of time. Kiwis aged between 35 and 44 are the least likely to volunteer due to that time pressure. That’s why involving the whole family and combining family time with a volunteering project is a win-win situation. Not only does your community benefit from your volunteering, but so do you!

This event is ideally suited to children aged 5 years and older, however younger children are welcome to attend. Please note: parents will be held responsible for their children at all times.

Please note: we only require one registration per family group.
