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. 2018 will be the 32nd anniversary of the annual Toy Run.

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.
Another very successful collaboration between the NZ Police/Blue Light and Birthright Hawke’s Bay Child & Family Care demonstrates the willingness of both organisations to work together for better outcomes for our children and youth.
Pure Magic! During May this year, nine schools in the Wairoa and Napier area were lucky enough to have Elg Gregoe, an award-winning New Zealand magician, visit their schools as part of the Social Worker in Schools (SWiS) Preventative Programme arranged by Birthright Hawke’s Bay Child & Family Care. Elgregoe’s show teaches key values that educate students about how to treat others and has a strong emphasis on cutting down bullying in New Zealand schools.
