PROJECT Dishwasher

A HUGE thank you to all of you that donated money towards our new Dishwasher!


UPDATE: … YOU DID IT! THANK YOU! 29 donations of your hard earned after tax dollars and BEHOLD we now have a new dishwasher / steriliser to clean the dishes of our distinguished guests!

The women of Te Wahi Ora Women’s Retreat urgently needed a new DISHWASHER / STERILISER 

And we needed your help to get one!

We had been given a grant of $2000 by The Trusts Community Foundation but we still needed $4000. We put out the call… “If 160 women gave $25 this could be achieved… if you felt like being more than one woman that would also be much appreciated :-)”

We set up a specific GIVE A LITTLE page for ‘Project Dishwasher’ and you responded generously.

Our beloved Starline dishwasher has given over 20 years of faithful service to 1000s of wonderful women. Starline has been resurrected countless times, and had many near death experiences… but it is now time for her to find her final resting place at the metal recycler. We shall miss her, remember her and look forward to working with her successor.

Bev held what is known in the counselling profession as a ‘Termination Session’ …to help bring closure for Starline as she leaves Te Wahi Ora for the next phase of her journey.
