Wellington City Mission

Last night Dame Patsy and Sir David hosted staff and supporters of Wellington's City Mission to hear about the Mission's exciting new project, Whakamaru, which will be a community hub in Newtown. When Whakamaru is completed in two years' time, it will incorporate a community cafe, social supermarket and 35 supported living units. Murray Edridge, Wellington City Missioner noted the heavy demands on the Mission's services from a broad sector of society, and said "The time is always right to do what is right".
