On January 17 VOYCE Te Waipounamu collaborated with Oranga Tamariki Rangiora on a Tūhono event at Willowbank.

It was a fun afternoon event for children and young people in care from Oranga Tamariki in Rangiora, with everyone coming together for a BBQ and to explore the Wildlife Reserve.

A couple of VOYCE Kaiwhakamana attended to share the kaupapa of VOYCE. We met loads of new awesome tamariki and rangatahi coming from as far north as Hamner Springs all the way down to Kaiapoi, North Canterbury – with 50 tamariki and rangatahi aged between four and fifteen years old.

VOYCE also connected with social workers from the site and introduced ourselves to the caregivers.
