Our annual Toy Run is staged on the second Sunday in November each year. This is a great event attended by over 200 motorcyclists from around the north island who kindly donate a toy in lieu of an entrance fee to ride from Hastings to Napier via Clive. It is spectacular event only out classed by the sound of over 200 motor cycles driving past! The toys are then wrapped up and given to all the children we are working with at Christmas time. For some children this is the only gift they will receive at Christmas time. A very special event which has been running for 30 years.
At the beginning of each year Birthright Hawke’s Bay Child & Family Care takes a day out to reflect on our social work practices and to identify areas for development – as an organisation, as a team and as individuals.
We hold these hui’s at the Pukemokimoki Marae as it provides the perfect setting to work collaboratively together with an open mind and spirit.
