"Walk Around the World"
We had a great time thanks everyone
who joined us on our inaugural walk to
raise awareness of brain tumours,
by walking the amazing Dunedin Street
Art Trail. So many more to see that you
just don't notice by driving past!
The weather behaved and our
youth group did a great job remembering
the details of the art works.
Thanks to Ash at Gud Coffee and Anika's Mum
at 'Ronia and Pippa' for the great coffee and
healthy juices, respectively, along the way too!
And who were those superheroes?
- Janaya, Caiden, Teha and Caeli-
supporting those fighting
against brain tumours.
An many congratulations to our Dunedin
walker, Katy Guthrie, who won
the draw of the well-deserved
pamper package generously
donated by Rochelle Muir of
Castaways Resort Auckland
WALK AROUND THE WORLD
2nd November 2019
A beautiful beach walk started with poignancy and hope by Anne- Marie’s story about her Mother and Family. Indeed, so many touching stories. Sir Richard brought his research laboratory workers (such an enthusiastic intelligent lot!) and family (with the youngest cuties). Couldn't resist the occasional canines amongst us too!
Thank you to our amazing youth braving a 'slightly cool' early morning at the Dunedin Farmer's Market and Centre City.
They raised over a thousand dollars and a few eyebrows with their life size model of a brain!

An amazing launch of Sai's cookbook! Thank you to everyone who came and to everyone who purchased all those copies for friends!
Thank you especially to Mirani who made the atmosphere so special with her saris, and those cinnamon and cardamom aromas!!
If that string hadn't broken we would we would also have enjoyed Carthika's veena- but we look forward to another time instead!!
The cookbook is available at our website or at the publishers website.
