Many volunteers could qualify in more than one category. However, the nomination of a person may be for only one category each year. It is acknowledged that many volunteers’ efforts are the result of several years of commitment and involvement, so a nomination may recognise the volunteer’s total contribution to the New Zealand multiples community, over the last few years.

 

Membership status of those nominees for awards which specify the recipient must be a financial member of a Multiples NZ affiliated club or Multiples NZ will be confirmed with the relevant clubs. Nominees for the Community Dedication award do not have to be financial members of a club.

Nomination forms are to be emailed to awards@multiples.org.nz with the subject line – Multiples NZ Award Nomination 2022.

Ciska has just completed the club renewal process AND volunteered at our recent AGM add duties by supporting our new families co-ord as well.

I just received my club renewal letter and it sang from the page – giving been a member for 6 years now that speaks volume.

Noeleen Warman Multiples Hutt Valley.

 

Volunteer of the Month April 2023

Congratulations to :

Fei Hsia & Phil Cahill

 

Multiples Otago-

 

Fei Hsia and Phil have been members of Multiples Otago since their twins, Nathan and Alec were born late 2014.

 

Since then, Fei Hsia has become a General Committee member. Alongside Fei Hsia, her husband Phil has been and continues to be an integral part of the club.

As a unit, these two pick up the odd jobs, and are ready to connect with people when it makes geographic sense for them to do so and also, adding a layer of knowledge and unique thought process at a committee level. This is of much value. They are at every playgroup as a whānau, helping to cater, provide spare hands, managing logistics, and always with an empathetic ear.

 

As both Nathan and Alec have grown older, they too have become a part of these Playgroups and alongside their younger brother Liam, Nathan and Alec take on their roles as pack up crew very seriously and with minimal hesitation. You will find them with cloths and brooms at the end of any playgroup, while Phil and Fei Hsia are helping the last few members get their children to the Car, or helping clean up in the kitchen.

 

The Cahill family are an example of a generational commitment to our cause.

Knowing that when they faced their own challenges at the beginning of the lives of their own Multiples the club was there for them, is the driving force behind why they continue to get behind Multiples Otago. It is because of whānau like Team Cahill, that the club will continue to be here in the future.

 

I am nominating on behalf of our entire committee, with the support of many of our members, with a nomination long overdue.

 

 

 

Also congratulations to our other nominees for April

Hannah Barnao- Multiples Hutt Valley

Jessamy and Will- Multiples Canterbury
