Canterbury Refugee Resettlement and Resource Centre visit

The second stop on Dame Patsy's final visit to Christchurch was a place she is now well-familiar with - the Canterbury Refugee Resettlement and Resource Centre. This was her fourth visit to the centre, based in the Phillipstown Community Hub. While she was there, members shared their stories about how they came to New Zealand and what it was like for them settling in to their new home. 

Founder Ahmed Tani presented Dame Patsy with a poem about diversity to thank her for her visits to the centre during her term.
