Words from the Coordinator

Kia ora koutou katoa,

My name is Andy, and I am the Coordinator for Ellerslie Raise Up Crew.

I grew up in Wellington but I now call Auckland my home. My mum is Māori, my dad Norwegian so I’ve grown up around diverse cultures, and love to spend time with different people of all cultural backgrounds.

I love travelling, collecting sneakers and eating, but since I haven’t been able to travel, lately it has just been sneakers and mostly eating haha. I have given most sports a go, my favourites are basketball, rugby, and martial arts.  Oh, and I also work part-time for AJ Hackett Bungy NZ, so I do enjoy jumping off of things from time to time.

At Ellerslie Raise Up, our goal is to create a whanau environment for our crew. A place where we can help each other develop skills and grow both individually and together. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what your culture is, if you are looking for a place to chill out, play some sports and if you are keen to plan some cool events, whether its sports, fashion (or anything you can think of!), sign on up and don’t forget to tell your mates to sign up too!!

Churr!! :)

Upper Hutt Update 2017

Upper Hutt has had a busy and eventful year making themselves known for there willingness to be an active part in their communities. They have had much going on over the year from Hackathon, where they were given the opportunity to pitch and present an idea to an event committee, members of the public and members of council. They were one of three selected and got the opportunity to see there idea of a 'house of horrors' come to life with the support of there community. Along with helping when needed and supporting local clean ups and building up the youth in there community. Congrats Upper Hutt on an awesome year!
