July Sinulog NZ Community Outreach Programme

Thank you to the Sinulog NZ Community Programme Volunteers who came to the Edmund Hillary Retirement Village

“Dedicated hearts like yours
Are not so easy to find.
It takes a special person to be
So generous and kind.

To care so much for your fellow man
Is a quality all too rare.
Yet you give of your time and talents,
For all in need to share.

So thank you for being a volunteer,
We’re privileged to work with you.
We want you to know how appreciated you are,
Not just today, but the whole year through.”

poem lifted from

Photographs to remember this day.
