Volunteer for the Wellington Vigil

Location | Wellington

Volunteers in Wellington needed for the vigil tonight. Who can rally some Wellington friends to help?

On Sunday 17th March from 5.30pm (for a 6pm start) in Wellington Te Ngākau Civic Square, we will hold a candlelight vigil for our communities affected by the Christchurch tragedy.

The event will run for approximately one hour. Public transport to, and parking around, the event will be free.

There are three volunteer tasks people can help with:

Collect donations for victims/families of victims 
Get signatures for a petition to triple the refugee quota
Hand out flyers with more information about how people can make change

If you're keen for any of those tasks, can you please sign up here and/or share with friends? There will be a volunteer briefing today at 4.30pm outside City Gallery in Civic Square.

Kia kaha, with love,
