  1. Surf Life Saving Northern Region Inc #CC21256

Northern Region is the largest of the Surf Life Saving regions in New Zealand covering Auckland to the Far North, and as far south as Raglan.

Surf Life Saving is one of the best imports we’ve ever had from Australia. It was on its long sweeping beaches and in its crashing waves that lifesaving was born in 1906. The traditions that took root there first came to the shores of Lyall Bay and New Brighton in 1910. By the end of the year, four more clubs had sprung up and started patrolling.

 

2.  Littlemore Trust #CC53675

GIVING YOUR BABY’S CLOTHES A SECOND LIFE

It’s our vision to see communities where every newborn is set for life. That’s why we’re helping families share the joy of parenting. We’re doing this by helping Kiwis pass on their pre-loved baby clothes and other baby essentials to families with newborns in need in Auckland. This may seem such a small thing, but every little piece of baby clothing, bedding, carseats & more that you donate, really does make a huge difference. So if you’ve got some gear that you’re thinking of passing on, here’s a massive thanks in advance from the little ones you’ll be helping.
