Kia ora tatou, next week from 16th - 22nd June is NZ Volunteer Week!
This year the theme is 'weaving the people together' which is certainly appropriate as ever to our work.
As a centre, we could not operate without the amazing support of our wonderful volunteers and the generous donation of time that they give.
It's so essential in creating healthy communities.
"A Woman's Work"
Check out this spectacular "A Woman's Work" fundraiser we have going...
A big thanks to the wonderful Elsie and Gin Boss, who are donating all proceeds to the Nelson Women's Centre.
For just $40 + postage you can get a handmade framed lace art piece, a box of L'affare chocolate coated coffee beans, a box of Enzo Orient tea and a bottle of Rocket Fuel sauce - AMAZING !!
These packs are limited and would make great gifts.

The Centre needs more volunteers to help it in its many functions.
We are looking for two types of volunteer.
Those that we can call on for one-off working bees, particular projects and events.
We also require ongoing volunteers who can commit to 4-5 hours on one day per week. These volunteers would help support the day to day running of the Centre including coordinating our Volunteer staff.

Holistic Pulsing with Rona Spencer - from 11 February
Holistic Pulsing is a mind/body therapy that uses a rhythmic rocking movement that works on many levels, allowing muscles and other tissues to 'let go'. Gentle lengthening, stretching and opening techniques are sometimes also used. Facilitated dialogue further allows you to become curious about your body and where it is holding energy
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Governing Collective Volunteers
We need passionate women to be part of the Collective that makes decisions about the day-to-day running, and the future, of the Centre.
The Governing Collective plays a very important role at the Centre. We have a flat hierarchy and we work together to help make a difference for women in the community.
We are looking for one or two dedicated women to fill vacancies in the Collective. If you would like to make a difference and are dedicated to women's causes; and can make a small monthly time commitment, we would love to hear from you.
You can donate to our Givealittle page. Every little bit helps us continue to help women in our community.
