Happy New Year from us all here at Age Concern. Our office has reopened after the holiday break and resumed normal hours. We are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm.

Thank you so much to everybody who made donations for our Christmas Care Packages. We were absolutely blown away by the kindness and generosity of you all. A special thanks to all the individuals and organisations who donated items, particularly Port Nelson, St John, Nelson College Prep, Support Works, Nelson Inner Wheel, Tahunanui primary school and Richmond Primary School. Thanks also to Richmond School for making up the boxes and creating lovely cards to go with the Care Packages. This year we are also fortunate to have staff from Richmond-based insurance broker firm Crombie Lockwood Nelson, to help deliver these packages as volunteer drivers.
