Craig is doing a great job in his new role as Driving Navigator for New Zealand Blue Light, New Zealand Police Driving Initiative in Taranaki! πŸ‘πŸ€©

It has been a busy month with the Starrt it up car and with Craig's help, quite a few young people are undergoing the learner license process.

The program helps young people go from pre-learners through to acquiring a full license (which takes at least 18 months) and makes all the difference for vulnerable young people who otherwise would struggle with the costs of attaining a NZ driving license.

New Zealand Blue Light, Taranaki now have 28 learners on their driving journey and will strive to take them through to completion of their full license.

Late last week Rapid Relief Team NZ responded to a call to support emergency services attending an event in Levin.

Emergency services were called to attend a tense standoff, evacuate 80 surrounding properties, and secure the streets close by.

Our volunteers assisted New Zealand Police, Fire and Emergency NZ, and other agencies on Friday by serving lunch, and dinner.

The incident has now been resolved, with no loss of life, (including pets) and neighbors have been able to return back to their homes.

Our heartfelt thoughts are with the Levin community at this testing and unsettling time.

Another Tough Guy & Gal Challenge was held at the new venue, Kumeu Showgrounds, Auckland, on 3rd/4th August, see Event Promotions. πŸ‘πŸŽ–οΈπŸ’¦

1200 primary school kids took to the mud and tackled the course and embraced the stunning weather. The day started off with a little fog, which looked a bit spooky, but when it lifted, revealed a perfect day!

Our team, Rapid Relief Team NZ Auckland volunteers, were honored to provide a BBQ lunch and drinks to all those attending; the kids, Mums, Dads, whanau, caregivers, friends, and teachers!
