On the 23rd and 24th June 2018, ten Kerikeri people and four Mangonui people gave up their weekend to train as volunteer coaches, or to help with logistics for the training. The trainer was Jo Poland. Wendy Wyatt travelled down from Mangonui to help in any way she could, and washed a great many dishes. Thank you to group organiser Seok Dawn for all the background organisational work and for finding such a lovely training venue, Kingston House.
The group will be working with adults and has a particular interest in working with young people who are struggling with apprenticeships.
