BNZ helps home

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

Longview Home in Tawa will host BNZ’s Closed For Good vol­un­teer ini­tia­tive next month.

About six staff mem­bers from the Tawa branch of BNZ will spend Wed­nes­day, March 9 at the rest home, clean­ing win­dows or putting in gar­den edgin­garound Longview’s A and B wings.

Longview re­cre­ation of­fi­cer Mar­lene Bowles, who ap­plied to the Closed for Good web­site on be­half of the home, said both projects were sug­gested by res­i­dents at a meet­ing.

‘‘Our main­te­nance man doesn’t have the time to clean all our ex­ter­nal win­dows, some of which are quite high up,’’ she said. ‘‘We’ve also got a lot of red bricks, which the res­i­dents thought would look nice lin­ing the gar­den beds.’’

Closed for Good Day in­volves all BNZ branches shut­ting up so staff can help the com­mu­nity out.
