Dame Patsy and Sir David hung out with people wearing some rather crazy, enormous hats at the opening of Performance Arcade 2019 last Thursday night. The Performace Arcade is an annual event that brings performance, art and performance art to Wellington's waterfront.

On Tuesday, Dame Patsy hosted a reception for ShEO. 

SheEO is a recently formed organisation, whereby women support female-led businesses through a fund for interest-free loans. Inspiring people to do inspiring things.

Then on Thursday, she hosted the Rare Disease Day Awards. Coco also showed up for the event. Rare Disease Day recognises the over 377,000 New Zealanders who live with a rare disorder.
