Rapid Relief Team NZ

You never know when a pair of RRT socks will appear!

Rapid Relief Team NZ was delighted to be part of the RYDA Road Safety Driving Programme event last week at Papakura High School l, providing a free sausage sizzle for the 150 students. The RYDA Programme is targeted at young adults bringing awareness to the road safety messages as they begin to drive or be driven by their peers.
It was great to see the young adults smiling and we even had one comment “I got some of you guys socks on” as they posed for their picture to be taken.
Well done Team!
