Jeff from Vodafone went the extra mile to help us upgrade our very ancient phones, including vouchers for screens and cases – as a struggling not-for-profit who looks after Auckland’s seniors this was a great gift for the team. We were struggling with messaging and all sorts with the old handsets causing much frustration to our daily business.

Thank you Jeff- we're most most grateful 🙂

Tony, member and volunteer at Henderson, Massey and Te Atatu

“My wife and I spent years bringing up the grandchildren and after they left, my wife got in contact with Communicare and I decided to help out to fill in time. I started out as a helper and then began going to the sessions as well, and now I go between three centres. At Massey I help out by doing the dishes and then I also go to the sessions at Henderson and Te Atatu. Last year when all the groups met up, we dressed up in rubbish bags with two litre ice cream tubs on our head, and we won the dress up competition! That was great. I really enjoy playing scrabble with my friends. We don’t keep score, we just play to have fun. My favourite memories at Communicare are when we go out bowling.”

On Monday 1st October, a group of Communication Studies students from AUT held an event for Communicare at their City Campus. The event was held to mark the International Day for Older Persons at AUT, as a way to help drive a younger demographic to volunteer for Communicare. We all had an awesome time, speaking to students about what we do while also recruiting some new volunteers!

Ayu, Volunteer at Henderson Communicare Centre

"I think I started volunteering at the Henderson centre in May 2018, it’s not a year just yet. I just moved to Auckland, following my boyfriend, so I’m quite new here. I’m a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, so most of my clients are from the US and Canada. I’m lucky because I can communicate with them on the internet and the rest of the time I’m just working at home. I found out about Communicare while I was on the Volunteer Auckland website, as I was looking for volunteering jobs. I’ve done volunteering a few times back home in Jakarta, Indonesia. I like volunteering here more than I expected to … it’s lovely, I just feel comfortable with the people, the staff and it is very rewarding. I can see that not many young people volunteer here, seeing as I’m the only one in this centre. I think volunteering here is great because it’s such simple things you do, that actually mean a lot. It makes you feel like you don’t have to give a lot to make a difference. It’s such a new experience and so different to what I have done in the past, but it really is worth it."

Joan Gardener, Volunteer at Mt Eden Communicare Centre

I started at Communicare in 1986. My neighbour visited the centres and told me they needed more volunteers. I went along to help one week and haven’t missed many sessions since. The people really make the experience and keep me going back week after week. One of my favourite memories was when a man visiting from Korea asked if he could bring his choir next week. The next week over 20 people showed up each carrying plates of Korean food for the members. They put on an amazing show and even got some of the members to come up and sing and dance with them.
