There aren’t many people who consistently and without question go above and beyond for others in our community but Christine is one of them.
Christine has been a part of the Multiples Hutt Valley community since welcoming her own twin boys to the world six years ago. She talks openly about wanting to give back what she was blessed to receive herself as a new mum to multiples, and she’s certainly ‘payed it forward’ many times over.
Christine is one of our volunteer buddies for new families in the club, someone who reaches out with messages of support, coordinates deliveries of welcome packs, meals and checks in to make sure everyone is as supported as possible as they navigate the challenges of that first year.
At every one of our events you’re guaranteed to find Christine making the tea and coffee, making sure our families feel welcome and included, and is always there to set up or pack down, pitching in wherever she is needed. Her dedication to our community is unmatched!
You might even recognise Christine’s name from the Multiples NZ Facebook page! It’s not uncommon to see her reply to a range of questions or posts from our wider MNZ community with the most supportive, caring and genuinely personal responses. She’s always first on the scene to make people’s day a little brighter – our spreader of sunshine, and we are so proud to have her as part of our team!
Congratulations Christine! and also to our other nominees for June/July Noeleen Warman and Lindsay Hamilton.
