Eva Sil­ver­stone from Free­mans Bay was named Plun­ket’s north­ern re­gion 2016 vol­un­teer of the year. Sil­ver­stone is orig­i­nally from Ger­many, but has been vol­un­teer­ing for Plun­ket for nine years. She started as a cof­fee group host and co­or­di­na­tor and has taken over the role as sec­re­tary to the pres­i­dent of the Pon­sonby/Herne Bay Plun­ket Com­mit­tee. ‘‘It gives me a real buzz re­al­is­ing that I can make some­one’s life eas­ier by get­ting them in touch with oth­ers, or by just help­ing out read­ing or look­ing af­ter the kids at school,’’ she said.
