Jim’s Visit 2015

We had a great week of events and celebrations  with Jim Cockburn Key Assets Founder.

The visit started with a relaxing visit to Queenstown and Milford Sounds and the South Island trip ended with a carers lunch at The Old Vicarage.

Christchurch Carers Lunch

On Tuesday we had a teens dinner and acknowledged Liz and M’s 5 years together. M gave a very moving speech thanking Liz and the team at KA for all the happy memories and the support he had received.  All the teens were acknowledged for their commitment to their education and we are very proud of all of them.

On Wednesday we had a fantastic lunch with the Auckland carers at The Attic.  Raja and Shanaz received their 5 years service award with their twins Moon and Zubia who were also celebrating their 21st birthday. We were later joined by their current 15 year old and treated to a comedy act as Raja shared their funny stories about sleep walking and getting used to each other.

This was also an occasion for Angie to acknowledge Jim and Jan for their vision, passion and commitment to foster care spanning 20 years. Jim was presented with pounamu Taonga from the team for Jan and himself and the team and carers joined in a waiaata to farewell Jim as he moves on to visit the team in Sydney.
